Welcome to Quick Insights on Congressional Investigations, a video interview series hosted by Mayer Brown partners Michael Levy and Andrew Olmem, who will unpack the nuanced complexities underlying congressional investigations and provide guidance on how companies can manage and minimize the impacts. 

The congressional authority to investigate is far-reaching, and the risk to individuals and corporate entities is often heightened by intertwining political, regulatory, and media elements. Through this video series, Michael and Andrew will delve into the nuts-and-bolts and strategic questions surrounding congressional investigations and offer tips to protect corporate interests during these crises. Each episode will be short—3 to 5 minutes—and will tackle one question relating to congressional investigations. 

We invite you to watch our first episode below, in which Michael and Andrew explore the key differences—and similarities—between how Republicans and Democrats conduct congressional investigations.
