Practice Areas:

Brandt Pasco focuses his legal practice on national security regulation of business, including export controls, the National Industrial Security Program, and matters before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. He is an attorney in the National Security practice of Kaye Scholer's Washington, DC office.

Most recently, Brandt was an attorney at the Department of Homeland Security, where he was assigned to the National Security Council Task Force on Export Control Reform. In that role, he authored significant portions of the federal government plan for reforming U.S. export controls. Previously, he was the Deputy Director for Foreign Finance and Investment Policy at DHS, where he was responsible for negotiating statutory and regulatory reforms to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States after the Dubai Ports matter.

Prior to joining the career civil service at DHS, Brandt was for six years a political appointee at the Department of Defense, working on a number of export control and technology security projects for the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) and the General Counsel. He came to this role following two years at the Republican National Committee, where he was Sr. Analyst for Foreign Affairs and Defense, and subsequent service on the Bush-Cheney Transition Team at the Pentagon.

Brandt served on the legislative staffs of Senator Nancy Kassebaum, Representatives Vince Snowbarger and Mark Sanford, the Policy staff of Dole-Kemp '96, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
