Internal Investigation for Large Shipping Company Related to Grand Jury Investigation

We represented a large domestic shipping company that retained us after receiving a federal grand jury subpoena. To respond to the subpoena, we liaised with the investigating U.S. Attorney’s Office and learned that the investigation involved a large fraud scheme perpetrated by a third-party which related to our client’s business operations. We began an internal investigation, focusing on senior management’s dealings with the third party, and ascertained that our client’s risk was low. Based on the results of our thorough investigation, we have been continuing to respond to the subpoena and otherwise cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s office in its investigation, which remains pending.
