Clients praise the 'experienced' team at McGuireWoods LLP for its 'trustworthiness' and the 'exceptional' quality of its leadership, service and advice. In a significant individual representation, Washington DC's George Terwilliger and Benjamin Hatch represented former US Representative Aaron Schock following a 24-count DOJ indictment on fraud and false statement charges arising from his official expense reimbursements and subsequent reports to the Federal Election Committee; following motions to dismiss, two counts were removed from the indictment, while the team continues to represent the client in a preliminary criminal investigation launched by the DOJ. In Richmond, Richard Cullen and Patrick Rowan are also handling a number of representations on behalf of public figures in high-stakes investigations. The group also represents several multinationals, including corporations and financial institutions, in state, federal and cross-border investigations. Charlotte's Kenneth Bell, Richmond's John Adams and practice chair Todd Steggerda in Washington DC are also names to note. In a major hire, Emily Gordy joined the Washington DC office from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, where she managed enforcement operations.
