Successful representation before Congress takes a multi-faceted approach. Our Congressional Oversight & Investigations Group provides both strategic advice and legal counsel to companies and individuals involved with and connected to various stages of Congressional investigations.
We begin with the premise that both politics and criminal laws are always in play during any interaction on Capitol Hill. Navigating the politics and processes on the Hill requires both policy and legal experience. Any time someone provides information to Congress—particularly sworn testimony—it is important to understand all of the potential policy and criminal implications. Our team includes former high-level Congressional staffers and federal prosecutors who together have the necessary legal and legislative experience to anticipate and counsel on all aspects of oversight and investigations.
We represent clients who are appearing before Congressional committees conducting oversight and investigations, as well as those responding to subpoenas or other requests for information. Working with members of Congress and their staff, we negotiate the extent of document requests and testimony, prepare witnesses for testimony, and navigate the political and legal minefields associated with any appearance before Congress.
Our experience includes representing a major telecommunications company, a hospital health care company, a major homebuilder and a large financial institution.
