Ki P. Hong Charles M. Ricciardelli Theodore R. Grodek

Partners Ki Hong and Charles Ricciardelli and associate Theodore Grodek discuss areas of law that call for — but do not always receive — the same degree of attention from political law professionals as campaign finance, lobbying and gift laws, including:

  • Honest services fraud.
  • “Dark money” and other legal issues created by giving to, or working with, 501(c)(4) organizations.
  • Considerations when dealing with shareholder requests regarding political activity.
  • FARA — a criminal statute requiring certain persons acting on behalf of non-U.S. principals to register and file reports with the DOJ.
