Abstract

Regardless of who wins the 2012 presidential election, the country is likely to see continued political infighting within or between the legislative and executive branches. Congressional investigations will probably maintain an aggressive pace, with broadened scope, irrespective of which party occupies the White House next January. Corporate counsel of companies that face congressional inquiries should prepare themselves and their companies so that this onerous process does not result in significant and lasting damage to the corporate brand.
