Government Investigations

Higher education institutions are subject to multiple laws, rules, and regulations covering every aspect of their mission. Oversight is becoming increasingly aggressive and the stakes are high.

We bring decades of experience in dealing with investigations, whether government-initiated, in response to whistleblower complaints, or because of internal compliance reports of fraudulent activities. Our combination of deep regulatory expertise and investigative experience is unparalleled. We strive to obtain the best outcome for you. Ideally, we aim to achieve a satisfactory resolution short of trial. When that is not feasible, we have tried — and won — hundreds of cases.
