Partner Zachary (Zach) Terwilliger has extensive experience in federal trials, appeals and investigations. He gained this experience over a decades-long career in public service, where he advanced from an office intern to serve as the presidentially appointed and Senate-confirmed United States Attorney in the prestigious Eastern District of Virginia. He rounds out his Washington experience by having served a year as counsel to the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a significant assignment as Associate Deputy Attorney General and Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General, whose office manages the entire Department of Justice (DOJ) and its various agencies. In a testament to his professionalism, he was the sole and unanimous recommendation of Virginia’s Democratic Senators to the President to serve as US Attorney in Virginia 2018, making him then the youngest US Attorney in the country.

Zach’s knowledge of how the DOJ and federal enforcement agencies function in both civil and criminal matters, particularly in regard to discretionary decisionmaking, provides him with unique insights necessary to effectively assist companies and individuals facing federal enforcement matters, including allegations of domestic and international criminal and civil violations. Zach is skilled in navigating internal and government investigations, allegations of bribery under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, complex criminal grand jury investigations, and congressional inquiries, among other complex white-collar issues.
