Gunster attorney and chairman of the board George LeMieux discusses why the scope and purpose of an attorney general’s subpoena is very important.
Watch the video now:
In the video, LeMieux describes receiving a subpoena from the attorney general’s office as a very serious matter. The first thing a business owner should do is to contact a lawyer, he advises. That’s because identifying the scope and purpose of the AG’s subpoena is very important – and isn’t a conversation a layperson should be having.
It may be that the AG’s office isn’t interested in you or your business, but rather in obtaining documents in an investigation of another company.
A good lawyer will be able to assist and protect you and your company.
