Subpoena Compliance and Grand Jury Investigations
Grand jury subpoenas are a common tool used by state and federal prosecutors and regulators and are issued to individuals and companies that may or may not have had any involvement in an alleged illegal activity. Oftentimes, subpoenas request documents to be produced in regard to a particular matter or business activity. This is a frequent occurrence in the healthcare and other highly regulated industries. Subpoenas are sometimes broadly worded and can very burdensome to respond to, but our criminal law attorneys are familiar with the best protocol to follow in responding to subpoenas and in negotiating agreements to narrow the scope of the documents to be provided. It is important retain legal counsel early on after receiving a subpoena, because properly clarifying the company’s association in an investigation informs appropriate response and may offer peace of mind to company leadership.
