Navigating the complex web of business laws and regulations is the new normal for today's successful companies. Investigations and enforcement proceedings for regulatory breaches can have serious impacts on a company's brand, reputation and financial performance, in addition to the time and costs involved in responding to these investigations.
Our lawyers have successfully defended companies and their personnel against investigations under securities, environmental, energy, competition, litigation and trade/customs laws. In addition to regulatory matters, we have a full White Collar Defense capability for serious criminal and quasi-criminal business conduct.
McMillan has significant experience conducting internal investigations, as well as responding to inspection/audit/search/seizure/subpoena and other investigative powers. We are frequently able to negotiate with regulatory authorities to reach positive outcomes for our clients, but also have the capability to provide vigorous defenses in proceedings before all types of agencies/tribunals and courts.
