Practice Areas:

William G. (‘Geoff’) Anderson, Jr., most recently was a senior counsel for Raytheon Company. In this position, Anderson’s areas of responsibility included the Air and Missile Defense Systems, including SM-2, SM-3, SM-6, and the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle. Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), with 2011 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 71,000 people worldwide.

Geoff also worked with RF spectrum management, environmental health and safety, industrial offsets, export/import compliance, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Before joining Raytheon in 2008, Anderson served as vice president, general counsel, and secretary of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, President Bush’s premier foreign policy initiative. MCC’s unique mission was to reduce poverty through economic growth through the administration of appropriated-fund grants to the world’s poorest countries, but with complete accountability for results. This $3 billion per year effort often funded infrastructure and agricultural projects, but also supported education and health initiatives, all with excellent results.

Geoff also served as the deputy general counsel of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, a federal corporation committed to selling commercial products to the U.S. private sector. These products include political risk insurance, financial guaranties, equity investments, and small-business loans, all for use in the developing world. Prior to that, he was with Trans World Airlines in St. Louis, where he worked on aviation safety issues, regulatory compliance, and international marketing agreements.

Geoff also served as a military judge advocate in the U. S. Air Force. He was an aviation litigation resource, and an authority on aircraft mishaps, investigations, criminal and civil liability, and the Federal Tort Claims Act. Prior to becoming a JAG, Geoff flew the F-4 Phantom, the top-of-the-line Air Force fighter-bomber, in a number of domestic and overseas locations.

Geoff graduated from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He later earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, Sacramento, California. He presently serves on McGeorge’s International Board of Advisors, and is a director of the Friends of the Law Library of Congress. He is a member of the California, Missouri, D.C., and U.S. Supreme Court bars.
