We have represented companies, executives and government officials in federal and state criminal matters as well as in investigations by Congressional Committees and other federal government enforcement agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Federal Election Commission, various Inspectors General, and the Office of Special Counsel. We are often able to convince criminal investigators not to pursue charges, and when we have to go to trial, we are prepared to win. Representative matters include convincing the Department of Justice to decline all charges against Paula Broadwell for alleged cyberstalking and allegedly receiving classified information from General David Petraeus, representing Senator Bob Packwood in two separate grand jury investigations that both resulted in no charges, working with co-counsel to overturn an ITAR conviction in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, and representing hospital and pharmaceutical executives in various grand jury investigations resulting in no charges.
We have also conducted internal investigations on behalf of clients concerned about violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Anti-Bribery Act, the False Claims Act, healthcare fraud statutes, campaign finance laws, and export control laws. Among others, our internal investigations have included scrutinizing, on behalf of the Government of Rwanda, the role of French officials in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi and examining, on behalf of the Major League Baseball Players Association, the responsibility of certain sports agents in the Biogensis drug scandal.
