Government Investigations


Government investigations carry the risk of fines and sanctions, as well as damage to a company’s brand. Our goal is to resolve them quickly and, if possible, through settlements or other means that stop short of full-blown litigation. The firm has successfully represented businesses and individuals in complex federal and state investigations, as well as private litigation proceedings, including national class action cases. Our experience in this area allows us to provide C-level management and boards of directors with sound legal judgment during an investigation and to manage the investigations both internally and in response to the media, regulators, prosecutors and private plaintiffs. 

Our years of practice have allowed us to develop relationships with state attorneys general and other regulators across the United States, which affords us the credibility needed to achieve compliance and the successful resolution of consumer protection investigations and other matters.

The firm has a depth of experience in the laws and regulations that govern advertising and marketing in the hospitality and resort industries, as well as other businesses that must adhere to complex consumer protection regulations where violations can lead to fines, lawsuits and class actions. We routinely work with retailers, marketers, advertisers, sales companies and other clients to develop and implement effective advertising and sales programs that balance legal obligations with a business-minded approach to create effective and compliant marketing and sales programs. We also advise clients on:

  • Antitrust investigations,
  • Compliance,
  • Disclosure,
  • EEOC and other employment matters,
  • OSHA,
  • Product recalls, 
  • SEC reporting, and
  • Securities fraud.

We work to learn clients’ business almost as well as they know their business. As your strategic legal partner, we recommend approaches that align with business objectives while maintaining compliance with state and federal laws.
