“A member of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee joined a colleague in urging law firm DLA Piper LLP’s Washington office to reconsider representing China phone-equipment maker ZTE Corp. (763)

ZTE’s executives, along with Huawei Technologies Co., tried to dispel allegations by U.S. lawmakers that their potential expansions may increase cyberattacks and spying in a hearing yesterday.

In what was described as the first appearance by Chinese executives at a congressional hearing, the executives heard accusations they haven’t cooperated with an investigation or shown they’re independent from a government accused of stealing U.S. intellectual property.

Republican representatives Sue Myrick of North Carolina, a member of the intelligence committee, and Frank Wolf of Virginia in a letter yesterday told DLA Piper they’re disappointed the law firm is advising ZTE “as it attempts to circumvent U.S. government concern and gain a larger share of the U.S. marketplace.”

The letter cited “threats your client may pose to the national security of the United States.”

DLA had no comment, John Merrigan, a Washington-based partner, said in an e-mail.

Huawei and ZTE, both based in Shenzhen, told lawmakers at the hearing the companies aren’t controlled by the Chinese government, which Mike McConnell, a former U.S. director of national intelligence, has called the “the most prolific” state thief of U.S. intellectual property.

The companies haven’t provided full answers and supplied “very few” documents that relate to the committee’s probe, the committee chairman, Representative Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican, said during the hearing.

Zhu Jinyun, ZTE’s company’s senior vice president for North America and Europe the ZTE executive, told Myrick during the hearing that the company hasn’t sold gear to the Iranian government.

“We conduct normal business operations in Iran, but we are gradually reducing our present operations and we are not starting any new business operations in Iran,” Zhu said.

Firms From Law to Finance Benefit From $1 Billion TARP Expenses

While Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner lauded the government’s sale of American International Group Inc. (AIG) shares this week, the U.S. bailout program reached another milestone.

Expenses from the Troubled Asset Relief Program have passed $1 billion, with more than 70 percent of that going to “financial agents and legal firms,” according to Treasury Department data released Sept. 10. The total paid to the companies as of Aug. 31 was 37 percent more than it was a year earlier.

Companies that have been paid for TARP work include investment firm Houlihan Lokey, which reached a $4.5 million deal in November to advise the Treasury on managing and selling bank stakes, according to a July report by TARP’s special inspector general. Law firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP agreed in 2009 and 2010 to contracts worth about $25 million, most of it for work related to auto-industry bailouts.

TARP was enacted under the George W. Bush administration amid the 2008 financial crisis and continued under President Barack Obama. The government used funds to rescue banks including Citigroup Inc. (C) and Bank of America Corp., and automakers General Motors Co. (GM) and Chrysler Group LLC.”
