Congressional Inquiry & Investigations

Why Choose Us

For a company facing a congressional investigation, no firm is better positioned to help than we are. Our lawyers and policy professionals have the experience and connections to help companies weather the legal, policy and public relations challenges associated with high-profile, high-stakes congressional investigations.

Members of our team have worked on or with the Democratic and Republican staffs on the major investigative committees in the House and Senate. We have an unparalleled insider’s knowledge of the congressional investigations process, key members and staff, and how to prepare for and respond to document requests, subpoenas and hearings. We understand the relationships in Congress that drive the decisions members make.

Unlike other types of investigations or litigation, congressional investigations take place in the public eye and can result in substantial reputational damage. We know how to manage the investigative process to minimize adverse consequences for your business and its brand. We work with you to find creative solutions and devise suitable strategies for responding to investigations or resolving unique and difficult disputes.

Congressional investigations often occur concurrently with or lead to other government investigations or legal proceedings. Our team includes white collar and general litigators who coordinate to guard against any adverse collateral impacts. We are prepared to address simultaneous investigations pending before multiple branches of government agencies or other tribunals, nationally and internationally.

While corporations may be of considerable interest to members of Congress, we are also aware that specific individuals may face their own scrutiny. For that reason, we offer joint representation for individuals facing scrutiny from an independent counsel or other entity regarding the same investigation. Even in the early stages of an investigation, or when one is not facing criminal charges, representation is crucial.

Because of our expansive capabilities in congressional investigations, we are often retained by members of Congress in connection with campaign finance litigation and investigations, and in ethics investigations. Our team understands the unique nature of these investigations, as well as how to address matters efficiently and economically.
