Governmental and Internal Investigations



In today’s heavily regulated business environment, some of our clients become ensnared in investigations brought by a variety of federal and state authorities. Other clients preemptively seek to root out possible problematic activities through internal investigations and avoid the government knocking on their – or their employees’ or customers’ – doors. Still other clients face suits by purported whistleblowers in False Claims Act/qui tam actions that invite the government into their businesses and expose them to different levels of criminal and civil liability.

Robinson Bradshaw attorneys have a wealth of experience in such investigations and litigation. This enables us to help businesses, executives and other individuals respond quickly and comprehensively to requests for information or threats of government action from federal and state investigative agencies. We then swiftly chart and carry out effective strategies for dealing with such matters. Our experience includes defending grand jury investigations; coordinating large, document-intensive investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, Department of Labor and other agencies; and handling a host of internal investigations for public and private companies. We have also defended our clients in False Claims Act litigation in courts across the country.
