Sophisticated clients operating in increasingly challenging business environments need attorneys who operate at the intersection of law, politics, and public relations. Cadwalader’s Crisis Management and Congressional Investigations Practice provides clients with a suite of resources for solving today’s biggest issues.
We understand that these complex business concerns cannot be resolved in courtrooms alone – they require a multifaceted approach based on knowing the policy and policymakers at all levels of government. Leveraging our relationships in Washington and throughout the business world, we add value by focusing on long-term, strategic solutions to immediate crises. Our attorneys identify and monitor changing variables, analyze potential actions and outcomes, and make strategic decisions throughout the course of a crisis, managing the flow of information between the client, regulatory bodies, and the press to prevent or mitigate reputational and financial damage to clients.
Our team is led by a career Department of Justice official with deep and extensive Washington DC experience across administrations, who has also worked as a key staffer in the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives and as a senior White House Counsel. His knowledge of and experience with congressional investigations, including relevant committees and subcommittees, is invaluable for clients dealing with both high-profile and very sensitive matters. We have the expertise clients need to navigate the unique landscape of congressional investigations and inquiries while avoiding potential missteps that can bring legal, commercial, and reputational harm.
Backed by our nearly 80-attorney Global Litigation Group that includes a highly experienced White Collar Defense and Investigations practice in Washington, DC, Cadwalader is able to build the right team of trusted advisors to address our clients’ crises, no matter the size, subject, or industry.
