Mr. Chris Stagg

Christopher Stagg is a national security lawyer who advises clients on sensitive international transactions, such as the export of military and other restrictive commercial goods. He also assists clients with advocating and protecting their interests before federal regulatory agencies, including through the rulemaking process.

Previously, Mr. Stagg was a Senior Policy Advisor at the U.S. Department of State where he served on the interagency subcommittees and working groups led by the National Security Council to re-write U.S. export control laws under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). In this position, Christopher also worked with foreign governments on defense trade issues, authored legal interpretations to the defense industry, and advised the Federal Bureau of Investigation on counter-proliferation investigations.

Mr. Stagg is currently Vice-Chair of the American Bar Association’s Export Controls and Economic Sanctions Committee and is the President of the Export-Import Bar Association. Since 2013, Christopher has been the co-editor of the ABA’s Year-in-Review for Export Controls and Economic Sanctions. He is a frequent and widely requested speaker on defense trade issues, and has been featured by publications such as Bloomberg, Jane's Defence Weekly, WorldECR and Law360.

Before a legal career, Mr. Stagg was a reporter for Jane’s Defence Weekly where he covered the defense industry and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was also an analyst with Jane’s Information Group and an associate with Americans for Tax Reform. In addition, he interned at the U.S. Department of Justice and clerked at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Illinois. He received his law degree from Saint Louis University School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from George Washington University.
