This content is provided by Hueston Hennigan LLP.


Our white collar defense and investigations attorneys are among the nation’s foremost, and Hueston Hennigan is ranked by U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers as a Tier 1 Metropolitan White Collar firm. Chambers & Partners recognized Co-Chairs Brian Hennigan and John Hueston as “Leaders in their field for white collar defense in 2016,” and The Recorder awarded Hueston Hennigan “Best White Collar Department” in California for 2016. Also, this same department won recognition as one of the three best white collar departments in the United States two years ago.

Our attorneys have an extraordinary track record of obtaining terminations of investigations before they surface publicly or result in charges, as well as of persuading courts to dismiss indicted cases before they reach a jury. We represent clients facing government investigations and criminal and civil enforcement actions in state and federal courts, and before regulatory agencies, across the United States. We approach each matter aggressively, seeking to understand our clients and the facts of their case better than the government, and to achieve the earliest and most complete possible victory.

Our team includes three former federal prosecutors and two fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers. John Hueston is a former lead prosecutor for the Enron trial. Both he and Managing Partner Brian Hennigan have both repeatedly been recognized as a “Band 1” white-collar attorney by Chambers USA.
