Victoria Busch


Victoria Busch’s practice focuses on economic sanctions (OFAC), supply chain risk management (CBP), foreign direct investment (CFIUS), legislative policy, and congressional investigations. Victoria represents a diverse range of U.S and non-U.S. multinational clients before Congress and various regulatory agencies.

Victoria has substantial experience with sanctions matters before the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and has successfully assisted clients in navigating sanctions compliance challenges. She has prepared numerous license requests seeking authorization to engage in necessary activities and investigated and disclosed activities in enforcement proceedings. She has worked with clients to design and implement sanctions compliance policies, including conducting sanctions compliance trainings for clients.

Victoria advises both foreign investors and U.S. target companies on cross-border investment filings with CFIUS and often works with colleagues in other jurisdictions to determine whether non-U.S. foreign-direct investment filings may be warranted or required.

Victoria also counsels clients on global supply chain risk management and U.S. regulations on forced labor. She advises clients on supply chain due diligence, particularly in the context of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).

Before Congress, Victoria represents clients on policy issues focused on consumer protection, athletics, education, and foreign policy matters, and also advises clients under congressional investigation.

Pro Bono

Victoria is very involved in the firm’s pro bono work. Her pro bono practice is focused on immigration-related matters impacting vulnerable populations after the onset of conflict and war. Following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, Victoria and a team of DLA lawyers represented two Afghan women and their families who previously served in the Afghan government and faced threats of retaliation by the Taliban. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Victoria represented a Ukrainian family in adjusting their immigration status so they can remain in the U.S. This representation was particularly important to Victoria given her prior volunteer work with at-risk youth in eastern Europe. 

Prior Experience

Before her legal career, Victoria taught English to public school students in the Republic of Georgia. She also interned at The Carter Center.
