Gardere’s attorneys general practice provides representation for individuals and companies that face legal issues involving state attorneys general in Texas and around the country.
This is not an appendix to our practice. Gardere’s attorneys general team members work daily on state attorney general issues. We have worked in and outside of the attorneys general office and thus are seasoned at addressing the concerns of attorneys general while solving difficult problems facing clients.
State attorneys general have far-reaching authority to investigate and file lawsuits for a variety of different reasons, either on their own or through multistate action. This authority includes, without limitation, public policy concerns and alleged violations of:
Our team, led by the former top litigator at the Texas Attorney General’s Office and former assistant attorneys general, has decades of combined years of experience and extensive working knowledge of the investigative process. We regularly assist clients facing single-state or multistate disputes.
We work closely with the National Association of Attorneys General and have built solid relationships with attorneys general, their staffs and local practitioners across the nation.
The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission increasingly conduct joint investigations and actions with state attorneys general. We have significant experience in and outside of the courtroom.
The amicus positions of state attorneys general are significant in important litigation. We have successfully obtained such support at all levels, including at the U.S. Supreme Court.
By crafting creative solutions early in the process, litigation may sometimes be avoided and answers found before formal investigations begin or during the early investigative stage. Litigation avoidance can save clients’ money. Litigation avoidance can best be achieved by hiring a team that understands the intricate dynamics of public policy, politics and law. Utilizing the capabilities of seasoned government litigators and our full-service law firm, we are also here to assist when litigation cannot be avoided.
