Congressional Oversight & Investigations

Our bipartisan Congressional Oversight team brings substantial experience to bear to help individual, association and business clients facing Congressional scrutiny navigate the policy, process and politics unique to Congressional investigations, and prepare for and mitigate collateral legal and reputational risks. We also have a history of strong relationships with lawmakers and boast an enviable record of success for our clients engaged in the Congressional oversight process. We advise and support clients through the full range of Congressional oversight activities—whether it means resolving a preliminary or narrow probe quickly and without adverse publicity, or preparing company executives for high-stakes testimony before multiple Congressional committees under a politically charged spotlight and at the top of the daily news cycle.

Bipartisan and Multilevel Experience: Our team includes a former US Senator, former senior officials in Democratic and Republican administrations, former Congressional investigators, former federal prosecutors, and former senior staffers for Congressional committees active in oversight and investigations.

Cross-Disciplinary and Collegial Responsiveness: We anticipate and address the rapidly changing dynamics of Congressional investigations by closely coordinating with our White Collar Defense & Investigations, Commercial Litigation and Crisis Management & Strategic Response teams, and our clients' internal teams and outside consultants.

Problem-Solving, Nonpolitical Focus: Our experiential diversity on the Hill makes us a smart choice for the gamut of individuals, associations, nonprofits, and corporations involved in high-stakes hearings and investigations in the House and Senate.
