Quick Insights on Congressional Investigations is a series hosted by Mayer Brown partners Michael Levy and Andrew Olmem, who unpack the nuanced complexities underlying congressional investigations and provide guidance on how companies can manage and minimize the impacts. Each episode is short and tackles one question relating to congressional investigations.

In this episode, Michael and Andrew explore the risks of turning over confidential, sensitive, or proprietary information to Congress, as this material is vulnerable to public disclosure. There may be some practical considerations, however, that can create incentives for members of Congress and their staff to protect documents provided in confidence. Michael and Andrew also discuss steps that should be taken to safeguard confidential materials in advance of production.
