Our litigators are well prepared to protect the rights of our clients, whether it involves defending a claim against a client or prosecuting a claim on behalf of a client. We have experience handling a wide breadth of complex commercial and employment-related litigation in federal and state courts throughout the country, in addition to the many disputes we have resolved in alternative forums such as arbitration and mediation. Specific practice areas where our litigators represent clients are discussed below.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in representing both individuals and entities in public corruption and other white collar criminal investigations at the state and federal level. Our attorneys frequently represent clients before investigating grand juries, and have been involved in some of the most significant public corruption and white collar cases in Pennsylvania history, including the Bonusgate scandal involving the state legislature, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission “pay to play” investigation and the criminal investigations into former State Senator Jane Orie and former State Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin.
In addition to guiding clients through major public corruption and white collar criminal investigations, our attorneys also have extensive experience in conducting internal investigations for both private and public entities. Our internal investigation experience is expansive and varied, ranging from investigations into allegations of workplace discrimination and harassment for private employers to allegations of fiscal mismanagement, lack of accountability, abuse of power and the misappropriation and theft of taxpayer funds at public entities. Several of our attorneys’ internal investigations have been high-profile and resulted in the release of public investigative reports, including internal investigations conducted by our attorneys for Coatesville Area School District into racist and sexist text messages sent by school administrators and for the Governor’s Office of General Counsel into the licensing and oversight of child day care centers by the Department of Public Welfare’s Office of Childhood Development and Early Learning.
