Regulatory Audits, Investigations & Enforcement Actions

We represent clients in responding to and undergoing regulatory audits, investigations and enforcement, ranging from an individual solo practitioner, all the way to Fortune 50 companies.

Our Approach

When the federal or state agencies commence a regulatory enforcement action, our team works closely with you to respond and understand how the process flows, so you are informed every step of the way. Many people think that they have to agree to everything a government agency asks for; but with our intimate knowledge of the parameters of a government entities’ administrative and investigative authority, we help you understand what your rights are. In addition, we work with clients in a preventative manner, to review their business operations and ensure regulatory compliance, to prevent investigations or enforcement down the line.
