State Attorneys General

King & Spalding has decades of practice before State AGs managing investigations and lobbying for client’s interests. We’re ready from the first subpoena or Civil Investigative Demand through to litigation, settlement, or resolution.  We serve as national or coordinating counsel in multistate, multiparty and parallel investigations and know how to approach crisis management and public messaging.  More than 300 King & Spalding attorneys have served clients in State AG actions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, defending them in complex litigation, qui tam actions, and investigations of business practices relating to antitrust, consumer protection, data privacy, and the environmental claims.  We have the experience to advance the goals of our clients before AGs by building coalitions, understanding their interests, applying practical governmental and political insight, and advocating for their needs across the country from California to New York and Texas to Illinois.

Representative matters include:

  • A leading credit reporting agency in landmark multistate attorneys general data security breach investigations and litigation.
  • An international pharmaceutical/biotechnology manufacturer in parallel state and federal investigations by multiple State AG, Medicaid Fraud Control Units and five U.S. Attorney’s offices.
  • A major automaker in state and multistate investigations and litigation facing consumer and environmental claims.
