Government Investigations


Successfully defended state official during investigation of possible conflicts of interest

We represented an elected state official under investigation by the FBI for using his influence to divert money to projects from which he would benefit. We spent three months reviewing documents and interviewing witnesses, and after presenting our findings to the U.S. attorney’s office, the case was dropped.

Defended an Equipment Supplier Against Anti-trust Allegations

We represented a national equipment supplier suspected of anti-trust violations. The government’s anti-trust division believed the company was colluding with competitors to pre-determine bids for certain opportunities. We conducted a three year investigation, interviewing more than 60 sales personnel across the country and reviewing thousands of emails. Ultimately, our report to the Department of Justice resulted in the end of the investigation.
