Investigations and Enforcement

Statecraft attorneys have significant experience bringing and defending major civil and criminal investigations and enforcement actions. With a team that includes a former federal prosecutor, we regularly represent and defend private clients in state and federal inquiries and investigations.

We have spent hundreds of hours before federal grand juries and in federal courtrooms in criminal matters, and we have represented targets and witnesses in civil and criminal investigations.

  • Lead counsel in the investigation and trial of a sitting Arizona State Senator before the Arizona State Senate Ethics Committee. The case resulted in the senator’s┬áresignation before the close of trial proceedings.
