With more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Irwin focuses his practice at the intersection of government procurement and international regulatory law, concentrating primarily on corporate investigations and compliance counseling.  His unique background includes experience on export controls, economic sanctions and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

Mr. Irwin has a wide-ranging export control practice.  He has handled investigations and voluntary disclosures for companies in a range of industries, including aerospace and defense and high-tech.  Much of his work has involved the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), but he has also managed substantial Export Administration Regulations (EAR) enforcement matters. He also has counseled clients regarding all major economic sanctions regimes administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), conducted a number of FCPA investigations and reviews around the world, and has advised clients on Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) issues.

Mr. Irwin has handled significant False Claims Act and ethics/compliance matters, including those with related international regulatory concerns.  While in-house early in his career, he supervised major protests and handled issues relating to work with the Department of Defense, Department of Energy and the United States Agency for International Development.
