King & Spalding is also particularly well equipped to address crisis situations that may confront clients operating in the defense, intelligence, and national security arenas. The challenges  inherent in those kinds of crises can be compounded by the often highly sensitive and classified nature of defense-related information and operations,  as well as the great urgency and risk that typically accompanies such situations. Lawyers on the King & Spalding team can provide clients with years of firsthand experience and expertise in defense-related crisis management, earned both in government and in the private sector. During their prior government service, our lawyers were deeply involved, at very senior levels, in crisis response efforts that directly impacted national security.  Our team includes, for example, a former Inspector General of the Department of Defense; the former  Staff Director of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees' Joint Inquiry on the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, which was the immediate Congressional response to those attacks; a former Acting Deputy Attorney General who, among other things, supervised the Justice Department's national security division; a former Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department's Criminal Division who was integral to the Department's response to the September 11th attacks; a former Counsel on the Senate Select Committee on Secret Military Assistance to Iran and the Nicaraguan Opposition which, along with the House Select Committee, addressed the highly publicized Iran Contra Affair; and lawyers with TS-SCI clearances.
