Wiley Rein LLP is pleased to announce the addition of former Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary Nova J.

John B. Reynolds III, head of Wiley Rein's CFIUS practice, commented, "Nova is a first-rate addition to our group.  His hands-on experience in the management, development and implementation of U.S. economic and national security policies and programs will benefit our clients with transactions before CFIUS. He has participated in the most sensitive investment cases and been instrumental in drafting the new regulations under which CFIUS operates."
