Multiple Simultaneous Investigations and Public Hearings
Successfully handled seven simultaneous investigations by the Justice Department, two inspectors general, two congressional committees, and one foreign government for a contractor building a U.S. embassy in a politically-charged environment. We debunked nearly all of the allegations, settled outstanding areas of contention, and helped repair the public reputation by developing a series of positive articles in the Washington Post and Wall street Journal.
Navigated Back-to-Back Disputes Arising from Cuban Imprisonment of Contractor
When a subcontractor was arrested in Cuba for carrying out a U.S. Government program there, the family filed a lawsuit against our client, the prime contractor, and the agency on tort. We developed a creative solution for the prime contractor to discretely settle the lawsuit and pass through costs to the agency, minimizing the publicity and politically-charged atmosphere surrounding the case.
Helped Negotiate Ability to Remain in Foreign Country
When a foreign government sought to treat a USG contractor as persona non grata and arrested two of its personnel, we resolved the issues by presenting hard facts and evidence to the highest level ministry officials – without any word of the incident reaching the media.
