Duane Morris’ State Attorneys General Group includes former state and federal prosecutors, other former government attorneys and experienced criminal and civil litigators who have a keen understanding of how to handle a matter before any state attorney general’s office or regulatory agency.

When representing clients facing government scrutiny, Duane Morris has obtained meaningful and efficient resolutions.
Drawing on their extensive government experience, the lawyers in the group handle matters involving individual state attorneys general as well as multistate investigative task forces and cases brought jointly by state and federal prosecutors. Our lawyers have the requisite skills, experience and contacts to navigate interactions with an attorney general’s office—from the line prosecutors up to the front office—in order to maximize the opportunity for obtaining an optimal result for our clients. The team knows how to effectively negotiate a settlement with an attorney general’s office, if that produces the best result for the client. When litigation is the best option, the group’s experienced trial lawyers are prepared to litigate any case through to the end, including trying the case and pursuing appeals.
