"She uses her acumen and wealth of experience to quickly discern the most critical information concerning a dispute."

Chambers USA

Ginny Gibson is there when the whistleblower calls, the subpoena lands, or the agents appear at the door with a warrant. She helps companies and executives ferret out compliance issues to self-correct. She defends against accusations of fraud and regulatory violations. Ginny helps clients resolve enforcement problems with minimal pain.

A trial lawyer for 30 years, and at Hogan Lovells for the last five, she has defended clients under federal and state scrutiny and found solutions to legal issues and regulatory uncertainty while advancing business objectives. Because Ginny was a federal prosecutor for over 20 years, and the First Assistant U.S. Attorney and Civil Chief in two federal districts, she knows the language to engage with the enforcement team to get results. She defends clients against federal and state investigations, working in tandem with clients to achieve declinations or dismissal while counseling on compliance improvements that defuse the government's concerns.
