State Attorneys General

Our State Attorneys General practice brings together lawyers from across legal disciplines to help clients mitigate risk, conduct internal investigations, navigate policy changes, and respond to civil or criminal actions.

State attorneys general have sweeping enforcement powers and significant investigatory resources at their disposal. The scope of their oversight includes virtually every organization—public, privately held, or nonprofit—that interacts with consumers, competes for market share, pays taxes, maintains a workforce, or manages funds and other resources for public benefit.

Adrian King—former First Deputy Attorney General in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General—and Stephen Stigall, former Assistant U.S. Attorney in New Jersey and Attorney-in-Charge of the Camden, New Jersey branch office, lead our team, which includes attorneys with specific government and industry experience related to state AG enforcement matters, many of whom have held senior-level positions in state AG offices, U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, and state and federal agencies with overlapping jurisdiction, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

We maintain strong relationships with state AG personnel and have a deep understanding of how they structure investigations and enforcement actions, formulate policy, and collaborate with other state and federal agencies. Our lawyers have significant experience with AG offices in nearly all 50 states.
