Foreign Investment Watch Top Advisors 2023

March 27, 2023

Harry Broadman and Steve Klemencic were selected in Foreign Investment Watch’s “Top Advisors 2023,” an annual list of leading global Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) experts. The list includes thirty advisors who provide advice and counsel concerning foreign investment and national security in the United States and abroad and comprises mainly lawyers, strategic communications service providers, and geopolitical services providers. Mr. Broadman and Mr. Klemencic were the only providers of CFIUS compliance services recognized on the list.

Mr. Broadman serves as the chair of the CFIUS and Emerging Markets practices at BRG. He has held myriad public-sector roles, including a member of CFIUS; US Assistant Trade Representative; chief of staff of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers; and lead US negotiator in several formative institutions, including both the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. An expert on CFIUS and national security matters, he has provided a guide to responding to CFIUS and has consistently pushed the Foreign Investment Watch team to expand its coverage beyond CFIUS.

Mr. Klemencic serves as BRG’s CFIUS leader and is one of a small number of experts with expansive experience auditing and monitoring foreign transactions for their impact on national security. He has served as the compliance auditor on a number of transactions, has served on CFIUS third-party monitorship teams, and has shared his experiences and insights with Foreign Investment Watch on topics like building trust with CFIUS and preparing for compliance and mitigation expenditures. A former senior analyst at the National Intelligence Council, he developed and implemented the assessment process for the US intelligence community review of foreign acquirers entering into a CFIUS transaction. The effort encompassed all member agencies of the US intelligence community and provided a structured process for identifying potential threats to US national security.
