Litigation and Regulatory Action

Abernathy MacGregor is frequently called upon by companies confronted by legal or regulatory issues; these are often high-stakes problems with potentially significant repercussions. Our focus is to protect each client’s reputation and credibility while helping it navigate legal and regulatory complexities.

While such situations are rarely won in the public sphere, they can be lost if communications are not managed well. We work closely with legal counsel and our clients to develop the corporate narrative, plan for various scenarios and construct a thoughtful and effective media strategy, including rapid response to breaking news. As we identify and engage key influencers, we always align our communications strategy with the legal and business strategy and goals. In short, we know how to help win the litigation and protect the business.

Our team has a wealth of experience on a wide range of matters, including IP infringement, class-action lawsuits, environmental issues, white-collar, securities litigation, high-profile employment suits and commercial litigation and government investigations and regulatory actions. We’ve helped companies and individuals manage issues before the Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Trade Commission, Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Justice, New York Department of Financial Services, Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, and the attorneys general of all 50 states.
