The firm was retained by a state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation as a special examiner to assist in its investigation of contingent commission payments in the insurance industry. In addition to its factual investigation, the firm coordinated efforts with the state Department and Attorney Generals. As a result of this overall coordinated effort, approximately $250 Million was obtained in settlement.
The firm represented a banker who was being investigated by the FDIC, as well as being sued by the bank at which he formerly worked. Our firm resolved the FDIC investigation favorably for our client, including the dismissal of charges which sought to prohibit our client’s involvement in the banking industry. We also achieved a settlement in the civil lawsuit brought by the bank, which resulted in a multi-million dollar payment to our client.
The firm regularly represents companies being investigated by government agencies throughout the United States.
