John P. Carlin
Partner
Morrison & Foerster

John P. Carlin, former Assistant Attorney General for the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division (NSD) and former Chief of Staff to then-FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, chairs Morrison & Foerster’s Global Risk and Crisis Management practice group and is co-chair of the National Security practice group. Mr. Carlin, who served as a top-level official in both Republican and Democratic administrations prior to joining Morrison & Foerster, regularly advises industry-leading organizations in sensitive cyber and other national security matters, internal investigations, and government enforcement actions.

Mr. Carlin is routinely called upon to advise leading U.S. and overseas companies across numerous industries—including in the technology, healthcare, energy, defense, finance, fashion, media, pharmaceutical, and telecommunications sectors—regarding crisis management, cyber incident response and preparedness, regulatory strategy, and CFIUS. Clients appreciate that Mr. Carlin, who served until 2016 as the DOJ’s highest-ranking national security lawyer, can offer an insider perspective on their matters and is able to quickly engage the appropriate government actors in the event of a cyberattack or other significant incident affecting their business.
