While government investigations and prosecutions have become increasingly common, there is no such thing as a “routine” or “simple” subpoena, Civil Investigative Demand, or request for voluntary production of documents.
It is more important than ever that corporations and their executives retain counsel who can assess risk, prevent escalation, and face the government head-on when necessary. Our experienced team of former regulators and prosecutors, skilled litigators, and compliance attorneys assists companies and individuals with the full scope of government investigations, prosecutions, and regulatory actions, including preventive consulting, internal investigations, investigation management, negotiations, and litigation defense.
We pride ourselves on putting clients’ minds at ease, confident that they are prepared to face any questions that arise. Our team knows what to expect, and we are here to walk our clients through it from start to finish.
Our Government and Internal Investigations team has represented clients across a spectrum of industries, including financial services, oil and gas, healthcare, education, and entertainment. Our attorneys also counsel individuals who find themselves the subject of high-profile Congressional investigations, preparing them for testimony.
We advise clients on implementing proactive measures and protocols to get and remain compliant, to prevent the likelihood of an investigation. We offer “Investigation Preparedness Exams” devised to detect and correct internal weaknesses and gauge compliance before an investigation arises. These exercises have saved clients significant money by correcting potential violations.
We’ve been engaged by corporations, boards of directors, and audit committees to conduct internal investigations of suspected or reported misconduct, and we advise on whether, when, and how to disclose these findings to authorities.
