Discrete, Portable, and Agile
Costello Law Firm represents corporations and their executives and provides outside support to in-house counsel in legal crises resulting from government investigations or non-compliance with government regulations. We partner with lawyers as counsel to corporate executives and witnesses. We also partner with many firms without government investigation experience in their offerings when these matters come up occasionally for their clients.
We either associate with counsel to assist their management of a case or are hired directly in collaboration with, and under the direction of, counsel at the firm or corporate counsel. These limited engagements are what we do best.
Our corporate clients include:
- In-house Counsel
- Outside Counsel
- C-Suite Executives
- Boards of Directors
When they need our services
Corporations can face legal risk and peril from a multitude of sources. This includes allegations of malfeasance by an employee or agent leading to claims of embezzlement, bribery, fraud, or various financial manipulations. It can also include more complex allegations about violations of government regulations or requirements, false claims, employment disputes, and security breaches of customer privacy.
Why they need counsel
Corporations need experienced, focused attorneys who know the process and the lay of the land. Government investigations and litigation are a species to themselves; civil litigation approaches do not work with government agencies. Just as you would want the cardiologist with the most experience in your operation to perform your surgery, corporations need the lawyers with the most experience in their issue to represent them in government proceedings.
