We represented Burlington Resources in a federal criminal investigation that arose in Wyoming. The investigation focused on the company’s calculation and payment of oil and gas royalties. Over a two-and-a-half year period, we helped the company negotiate inquiries from the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission and the MMS. Our efforts included the review and production of millions of pages of documents in cooperation with other law firms assisting the company in civil litigation. We also shepherded dozens of company employees through voluntary interviews with government agents and, ultimately, testimony before a federal grand jury. This matter concluded with a formal declination of charges by the United States Attorney in Wyoming.
