WHY LOCKE LORD

State attorneys general have become increasingly aggressive regulators across the United States. Whether bringing litigation in state courts or collaborating with other states on large multistate investigations, the country’s AGs have taken aim at private sector conduct like never before. This is a time of tremendous growth in the role of state attorneys general, which brings new challenges for many businesses.

Locke Lord's state attorneys general team combines experienced litigators with industry and subject matter professionals to provide counsel to clients facing high-level, state government-related investigations and lawsuits across the country. With established relationships and regular dialogues with AG offices nationally, our team effectively and efficiently advises companies on the increasingly broad and active pursuit of investigations and lawsuits by AGs. We take a multidisciplinary approach by collaborating with industry and practice groups across our Firm, including consumer products, health care, insurance, labor and employment and antitrust as well as government relations professionals in collaboration with our public law and policy colleagues.

Our strategy on advising and supporting our clients includes:

  • Thinking holistically about how regulatory matters affect our clients’ businesses
  • Helping clients navigate future regulatory developments
  • Guiding clients in developing compliance strategies so they are best positioned to avoid future investigations and litigation

Clients rely on our ability to anticipate the likely course of an investigation and to develop solutions to help streamline the investigation.
