Collectively, our team has advised on hundreds
of transactions worth billions of dollars in the aerospace, defense technology, cybersecurity,
and government services markets.  Our deal
team’s investment banking experience is rooted
both in prior work at global financial institutions
known for a culture of excellence, including
Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley as well as
in a passion for serving the middle market, with banking experience at industry focused boutiques such as BB&T Capital Markets | Windsor Group and Jefferies Quarterdeck.

Our clients also benefit from the wise counsel and operational experience of The Chertoff Group’s senior Principals who have served at the highest levels of government in the National Security community and overseen billions of dollars of technology development and acquisition for the US Department’s of Defense, Homeland Security, and Justice, as well as at the National Security Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition senior members of our team have held C-suite and P&L level responsibilities at global technology companies such as L-3 Communications and QinetiQ.  We have keen insight into which new technologies are likely to transform the landscape, and our experience allows us to predict which ones may be headed for obsolescence.

Not just another "Beltway Boutique," The Chertoff Group has established a global presence beyond our headquarters in Washington, DC with offices now in London, New York and San Francisco. Our global footprint provides our advisors and clients with access to global deal flow and critical centers of gravity in technology, private equity and venture capital, and world trade.

By combining world-class deal execution expertise with deep policy insights and global access to key decision makers, The Chertoff Group consistently delivers superior results for our clients. We accomplish this through a relentless focus on our clients' objectives, level-headed analysis of the markets we serve, and an unrivaled ability to articulate our client's value proposition to the marketplace.
