David Laufman, an experienced former federal prosecutor, will take over the Justice Department’s counterespionage efforts as part of a larger restructuring to put more of a focus on cyber attacks, Reuters reports.

Laufman is expected to begin his job today as chief of the counterespionage section of the Justice Department’s national security division.

Laufman is returning to government work after joining the private sector. He’s worked as a CIA analyst, a congressional insider and in the early 2000s a senior Justice Department official under George W. Bush.

The Justice Department is trying to get a handle on growing cyber threats and violations of export control laws, Reuters wrote.

New Orleans has hired two attorneys from New York’s Kelley Drye & Warren to advise it on ethical issues and regarding a myriad of federal investigations targeting the city.

Washington-based partner David Laufman will lead the firm’s efforts with the assistance of associate Andrew Wein, according to the city contract. Laufman, formerly an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, specializes in white collar crime and federal investigations.

“In essence, I will help guide the city with its compliance through the course of this investigative action,” Laufman said. “I have counseled many individuals and companies grappling with investigations, but this is the first time I’ve provided this type of advice to a municipality.”

Laufman’s contract with the city extends from August through the end of October, and it appears there will be no lack of work. Federal authorities are investigating at least three matters involving City Hall, according to reports by The Times-Picayune of New Orleans and other published accounts.
