United States: Mcguirewoods Adds Government And Criminal Investigations Partners In Washington
Last Updated: February 13 2015

Accomplished litigators George J. Terwilliger III, Robert J. Bittman and Todd R. Steggerda join McGuireWoods' Washington office from Morgan Lewis. George will serve as co-chair of the white collar practice and leader of the new Strategic Risk and Crisis Management group. Todd will chair the firm's government contracts practice. All three are partners in the firm's Government, Regulatory and Criminal Investigations (GRCI) Department.

George served as a federal prosecutor and former Deputy Attorney General of the United States under President George H.W. Bush and helped lead the Bush legal team in the 2000 Florida election recount. In the private sector, Terwilliger counsels clients in internal investigations and enforcement proceedings, especially those involving the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other agencies.

Bob Bittman, whose practice focuses on issues impacting multinational corporations, particularly matters arising under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and False Claims Act, also has substantial federal prosecutorial experience. Todd Steggerda, a premier government contracts lawyer, brings more than 17 years of experience in litigation and regulatory enforcement actions in the defense and national security arena.

"Attracting George Terwilliger, Bob Bittman and Todd Steggerda is a coup for any firm," said Richard Cullen, chairman of the firm and a former U.S. attorney and former Virginia attorney general who established the firm's white collar practice. "Their experience, connections and leadership will be a tremendous asset for our clients. We are delighted they are joining us to launch the Strategic Risk and Crisis Management practice."
