Brackett was named to Who’s Who Legal’s “Future Leaders” list honoring top investigations lawyers ages 45 and younger. Based in Richmond, Virginia, Brackett co-leads the Strategic Risk & Crisis Management Group. He has handled numerous internal investigations for large corporate clients and defended them in criminal and regulatory investigations into alleged healthcare, mortgage and financial fraud, environmental crimes, bribery and violations of export control laws.

Respected, independent authorities have repeatedly recognized McGuireWoods for its white-collar litigation prowess. The firm holds a nationwide ranking for corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense in The Legal 500 United States. The National Law Journal has honored three of the firm’s government investigations and white-collar lawyers, including Terwilliger, as litigation “Trailblazers.”
