McGuireWoods is pleased to announce that Casey Lucier has returned to the firm after completing her service as investigative counsel to the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.
Lucier rejoins the firm in Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Virginia, as a partner in the nationally recognized Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department. Her practice focuses on government investigations and includes antitrust investigations and litigation as well as congressional investigations.
Before joining the House Select Committee staff in October 2021, Lucier represented companies facing government scrutiny across industries. She represented companies and individuals in government investigations, including antitrust cartel matters. She also conducted internal investigations, advised on compliance matters, and counseled clients on the risks of criminal prosecution and regulatory enforcement actions.
During her work for the House Select Committee, Lucier investigated interference with the result of the 2020 presidential election and the peaceful transfer of power. Her investigative work focused on pressure exerted on the vice president, pressure placed on state and local officials, and the organization of Trump electors in key battleground states. Lucier contributed to the House Select Committee’s litigation matters (principally Eastman v. Thompson), presentation of the House Select Committee’s evidence during public hearings, and preparation of the House Select Committee’s final report.
“Casey is a valued member our McGuireWoods family, and we are delighted to welcome her back to the firm,” said J. Tracy Walker IV, the firm’s managing partner. “The experience she gained while serving on the House Select Committee staff will be an asset to the firm and our clients.”
With more than 80 attorneys — including former U.S. attorneys and other federal prosecutors, enforcement officials and a U.S. deputy attorney general — McGuireWoods’ Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department has represented Fortune 100 companies and individuals in some of the most prominent and complicated criminal, regulatory and investigative matters of the past decade.
“Casey’s experience in such a sensitive, high-profile investigation strengthens our deep bench and will have enormous value to clients navigating government enforcement challenges, including congressional inquiries,” said Noreen Kelly, chair of the Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department.
Lucier added, “It was a privilege to be able to contribute to this important work and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the House Select Committee’s investigative staff. I am excited to rejoin my friends and colleagues at McGuireWoods. I look forward to reconnecting with clients and collaborating with McGuireWoods’ talented investigations and litigation team.”
