An investigation of your company by a state or federal agency can have both civil and criminal implications. It can also affect your company's ability to do business. You could lose existing contracts with the state or federal government, be disqualified from bidding on or receiving future government contracts, receive bad publicity, or face other consequences while your company is under investigation.
The lawyers at McBrayer understand what is at stake in a corporate investigation. With offices in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky and a government relations office in Frankfort with a presence in Washington, D.C., our lawyers represent corporations, owners and executives throughout the United States.
All state and federal agencies have investigative branches that review and investigate complaints of alleged civil and criminal violations. Examples of the agencies that we have firsthand experience dealing with:
- Federal Trade Commission
- Federal Communications Commission
- Department of Labor
- Food and Drug Administration
- Internal Revenue Service
- Department of Housing and Urban Development
- Department of Education
- Department of Defense
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement
If you receive a letter from a state or federal agency advising that your company is the target of an investigation, it is important to contact an experienced defense attorney before the case gets into the hands of a civil or criminal prosecutor. Our lawyers can advise you concerning:
- What rights you have
- What documents and materials the government has a right to review
- What consequences your company may face
- What personal liability you may have
If possible, our lawyers will seek to narrow the scope of the investigation and communicate with the investigators on behalf of your company and/or individuals in your company. Our goal is to resolve the potential dispute before it rises to the level of a civil or criminal proceeding.
