Government Investigations

DarrowEverett’s Government Investigations Practice represents individuals, corporations, senior executives, officers, board members, and other licensed, as well as unlicensed professionals subject to government investigations at local, state, and federal levels, as well as any criminal, civil, and administrative litigation and/or proceedings. We guide our clients through the investigation, resolution, and trial when necessary; however, some of our most significant victories are when we have thwarted any prosecution or civil litigation or have prevented the advancement of civil investigative demands.

The DE team has guided clients regarding subpoena compliance as well as testimony before regulatory agencies and grand juries. We advise our clients on the best approach to avoid possible civil liabilities, protect their personal and business reputations, and on how to mitigate the impact on their financial well-being.
