Counsel, Miller & Chevalier
[email protected]

Christopher Stagg is a counsel at Miller & Chevalier. He was deeply involved in writing US export control laws, and now companies turn to him to provide practical and strategic counsel to resolve complex export control issues.

Mr Stagg brings special insight into export controls and national security issues by drawing on his substantial experience within government at the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). He was deeply involved as DDTC’s deputy lead in rewriting the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and the Export Administration Regulations, including the revisions to the US Munitions List and Commerce Control List. He was an active participant in related interagency policy subcommittees chaired by the National Security Council.

Mr Stagg helps clients navigate export controls by providing regulatory interpretations and clear guidance, rendering jurisdiction and classification determinations, seeking the reversal of unfavourable agency actions through reconsiderations and appeals, advocating before the government for regulatory revisions to advance client interests, developing effective policies and procedures, conducting internal investigations and risk assessments, and advising on consent agreements and enforcement actions. He also advises companies on issues involving economic sanctions and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
