Corporate America Lawyers Up in Anticipation of GOP House
Public Policy & Regulation attorney Christopher Armstrong was quoted in an Axios article about corporate America's reaction to the possibility of a party shift in the House of Representatives. Many Fortune 500 companies are retaining major law firms with GOP relationships in anticipation of a Republican-controlled House. Mr. Armstrong explained that he has been briefing his corporate clients on a presumptive GOP caucus eyeing oversight powers to target private companies.
"In past Congresses, Republicans would be expected to focus oversight on the administration," Mr. Armstrong said. "Obviously, that will happen. But the presumption against them investigating private companies? I think those days are over."
