How We Help
CFIUS Risk Assessments
National security in the CFIUS context is broad and not always apparent. Understanding the potential concerns of government regulators early in the deal process is essential. Our experts help identify challenges that might arise and develop strategies to help to neutralize those challenges.
Investigative Due Diligence
StoneTurn’s seasoned investigators perform essential due diligence on potential targets, investors and partners, within the framework of a national security review.
Mitigated entities that handle classified information as part of their business are subject to the U.S. government’s industrial security program, administered by the Defense Security Service (DSS). Mitigation decisions by DSS will impact investments in ways that are not entirely intuitive. StoneTurn’s forensic accountants and data analytics professionals help senior leaders visualize the impact and possibilities for business success.
Mitigation Proposal Review
CFIUS can require the non-U.S. investor to commit to certain conditions in a mitigation agreement. The StoneTurn team helps anticipate, analyze, and strategize potential mitigation proposals from the government. We can also assist in balancing the competing interests of other countries conducting national security reviews of foreign inbound investments.
Compliance & Monitoring
Once a mitigation agreement is in place, creating the procedures and policies necessary for a successful, growing business to ensure compliance can be challenging. We view compliance not only as a business imperative but also as a potential differentiator. Our team works with companies to implement or enhance necessary internal controls and also monitors mitigated operations to ensure compliance and efficiency.
