Kilpatrick Townsend has high-profile attorneys experienced in internal and criminal investigations in our Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., and Winston-Salem offices. Our lawyers bring extensive trial and appellate experience, and have represented individuals and corporate entities in a wide range of criminal defense matters, complex internal investigations, and related criminal, civil, and regulatory proceedings. Throughout our practice, we regularly deal with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Attorneys’ Office, Securities & Exchange Commission, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), various federal Offices of Inspectors General, and state Offices of Attorneys General.

Our team consists of members with backgrounds ranging from former government officials — including former DOJ prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, the Central District of California, and the Eastern District of North Carolina — to leaders in the corporate governance arena and veterans of significant internal investigations. We come highly-skilled in conducting complex factual investigations of all kinds and in advising clients on criminal, civil, regulatory, and corporate governance repercussions of the inquiry.
