Corporate Governance, Executive Branch and Congressional Investigations

Large and small businesses remain  under intense scrutiny from federal and state investigators following recent high-profile scandals. In this hostile climate, businesses, even ones that have no intention to violate the law, need savvy legal counsel and well-crafted contingency plans long before a government probe officially begins.  Companies and corporate leaders turn to us for guidance in all stages of the legal process, from the initial government inquiry to defending clients in trial and on appeal. We also counsel companies through internal investigations designed to identify and mitigate or even eliminate potential violations.

We have experience working with clients in a wide range of industries, including the pharmaceutical, health care, chemical, manufacturing, food, import/export, government contracting, banking and communications sectors. We understand the specific regulations and requirements applicable to each industry.

Clients facing potential white collar criminal charges or government investigations turn to us and our  over 50 years of combined experience in handling such matters.  Our team guides companies through civil and white-collar criminal investigations related to claims of:

  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
  • Fraud—Mail and wire fraud; securities and other financial fraud
