Congressional investigations

Freshfields has extensive experience in all aspects of congressional investigations, including negotiating requests for documents and preparing witness for public testimony.

When you recieve a request from Congress, you need a bipartisan team that understands first-hand how Congress can wield its powers. Experience counts and our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience working for both Republican and Democratic leaders of key oversight and investigative committees in both the House and the Senate.

We have led hundreds of hearings and investigations on high-profile matters involving a range of issues, including: consumer protection; environmental justice; national security; technology; large-scale data breaches; COVID-19; prescription drug pricing; healthcare fraud; money laundering; sanctions evasion; and public corruption.

We draw upon this extensive experience to strategically prepare clients for the intense spotlight of national – and at times global – scrutiny that results from congressional interest.
