Lewis Thomason Launches Government Investigations Practice Group

As an expansion of the firm’s highly regarded criminal defense service, Lewis Thomason is launching a statewide government investigations practice group.  Jim Weatherly, John Manson, Miles McDowell, Preston Hawkins, and Chris Sullivan offer more than 50 years of combined experience within the group.

“These five attorneys have experience in the representation of businesses and employees subject to State and Federal investigations for alleged fraudulent conduct involving business practices and employee conduct alleged to be in furtherance of those business practices,” said Lisa Ramsay Cole, president and managing shareholder of Lewis Thomason. “By establishing this specialized practice group, we anticipate even greater service to our clients.”

In particular, these highly capable attorneys have been involved in the representation of clients in state investigation and litigation regarding alleged consumer protection act violations, both State and Federal investigations for alleged violations of environmental protection laws, federal investigation of a Ponzi scheme by an automobile dealer, and federal civil investigations of physicians for alleged improper billing practices.   

Additionally, they have represented individuals criminally charged with Social Security fraud and Medicare fraud, individuals charged with money laundering and wire fraud, those federally charged with violations of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), and individuals and businesses charged with theft of property stemming from Tennessee sales and use tax fraud.
