Trump’s last countrywide stability adviser to return to LA law business

Robert O’Brien, who was previous President Donald Trump’s previous nationwide safety advisor, is rejoining the legislation firm he co-started in Los Angeles, according to a particular person familiar with the subject.

O’Brien recently moved back to LA and is returning to Larson LLP, a litigation company, with around 30 lawyers, that he started in 2016 with previous federal judge Stephen G. Larson. O’Brien will be Of Counsel to the organization and will have an worldwide observe on arbitration. Very last month, the Nixon Basis announced that O’Brien would co-chair its foundation’s regular monthly overseas plan seminar with previous Secretaries of State Mike Pompeo and Henry Kissinger.

O’Brien, who arguably had the lowest community profile of Trump’s 4 countrywide security advisors, prioritized focusing on America’s geostrategic competition with China and also worked on the Abraham Accords and economic normalization between Serbia and Kosovo, amid other foreign policy concerns. A fierce advocate on television for Trump’s procedures, he also downsized the NSC’s workers. He also drew detrimental consideration in two issues filed by whistleblowers.
