BuckleySandler has extensive experience representing corporations, officers, directors, and public officials in formal and informal investigations by Congress examining business practices in the financial services and other industries.
Our practice in this area includes assisting our clients in responding to congressional inquiries, preparing for congressional hearings, and formulating and implementing strategies to minimize any collateral consequences – including public and media scrutiny and litigation risk – triggered by such investigations.
BuckleySandler attorneys have represented clients in congressional investigations involving a broad range of subject areas including:
- Anti-Money Laundering and the Bank Secrecy Act
- Consumer protection
- Ethics investigation
- Servicing and securities issues
Several of our attorneys have substantial congressional experience from their work as senior counsel to congressional committees. We provide our clients with effective and comprehensive strategies tailored to overcome the unique challenges posed when congressional investigations are initiated simultaneously with parallel civil and criminal enforcement investigations, actions by federal and state agencies, or class action and complex civil litigation.
