Government Investigations and Regulatory Proceedings
Our lawyers have assisted companies, officers and directors, and licensed professionals in government investigations and false claims act litigation, and have been called upon to conduct independent internal investigations on behalf of clients. Experience in handling complex disputes and skills developed through conducting factual investigations in a wide variety of business contexts enable us to respond quickly and effectively to potentially harmful situations.
We are often called upon by larger firms to represent individual officers and directors in the context of a larger investigation into alleged corporate wrongdoing. Through these experiences, we know how to coordinate with corporate counsel to ensure that our clients’ interests are protected while minimizing all parties’ exposure to regulators, prosecutors and private plaintiffs.
We have also successfully represented licensed professionals in Georgia in connection with inquiries and regulatory actions brought by professional licensing boards. Our Atlanta lawyers are available to assist fellow attorneys, medical doctors, pharmacists, dentists, architects, certified public accountants (CPAs) and others in responding to complaints brought to the attention of the board by former clients, customers, patients and competitors. For potential clients facing simultaneous civil, criminal and administrative proceedings, we have the skill and experience to effectively represent you on all fronts. If you are concerned that your professional reputation and license are on the line, we can help.
