Burbach, Pasquesi Co-Author Article on Increased State AG Activity

10 July 2019 Corporate Counsel Publication
Author(s): Edward D. Burbach Frank E. Pasquesi
Partners Ed Burbach and Frank Pasquesi have co-authored an article for Corporate Counsel, "2019: New Attorneys General and New Priorities," about significant recent developments evidencing an increase in state AG activity throughout the country.

The article notes that there are 17 new state attorney generals this year, helping to make up what may be the most racially and gender diverse collection of state attorney generals in history. Moreover, the majority have backgrounds in legislative bodies or state agencies, rather than as prosecutors or in the judiciary, which suggests that policymaking through investigation and enforcement is becoming the norm. And, as those attorney generals become more active, the authors conclude, it is more important than ever to have on-the-ground local state attorney general experience.
