State Attorneys General are powerful regulators with the resources to launch investigations and litigation with a far-reaching impact on companies in every business sector. From banking to pharmaceuticals, recent years have seen state Attorneys General taking an increasingly prominent role in nationwide enforcement efforts once reserved for federal authorities. Ropes & Gray offers a top-tier team of enforcement attorneys and seasoned litigators to help clients navigate the challenging and ever-changing state enforcement landscape.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in investigations and litigation brought by state Attorneys General, from individual actions brought by a single state to sprawling investigations involving multistate coalitions and federal enforcement authorities. Ropes & Gray attorneys have navigated some of the largest and most high-profile state Attorney General investigations in recent decades, including resolutions with multistate coalitions involving nearly every U.S. state and territory.

Our team, which includes seasoned former prosecutors and government lawyers, understands the complexities of the regulatory and enforcement environment and of working with government attorneys.
