A major internal compliance review or government investigation can be among the most trying matters an energy company will navigate. The lawyers on King & Spalding's Special Matters and Government Investigations team who handle these matters successfully understand the energy industry and the governmental agencies involved, and they are sensitive to the business needs of key company stakeholders.
Experience where it matters. With deep expertise in the energy industry, our team has earned a reputation for strategically guiding leading energy companies through Foreign Corrupt Practices Act internal and government investigations; False Claims Act and whistle-blower litigation; antitrust investigations; SEC investigations and proceedings; UK Anti-bribery Act interpretation; and related corporate compliance issues.
The Special Matters group’s practice is highly specialized. While other lawyers may “moonlight” in criminal and regulatory investigations, our attorneys devote their entire practices to these high-stakes matters, and our team has enough depth to handle numerous, simultaneous investigations around the world.
Know-how for where you are. We have represented scores of multinational corporations in cross-border investigations in countries such as Angola, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Italy, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, UAE, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States, Venezuela and Vietnam.
Knowledge built on real experience. With 17 of our attorneys having prior prosecutorial, regulatory, or Congressional experience, many of us have “sat in the chair” of the lawyers responsible for government investigations. Our team is led by Chris Wray, who served as the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Department of Justice's Criminal Division and oversaw the full range of DOJ criminal investigations both in the United States and internationally.  We have established relationships in the enforcement community and a high level of credibility with enforcement authorities, which allows them to be confident in our findings and representations.
