We additionally welcome opportunities to associate as counsel in complex cases or to serve as local counsel.

McKay Chadwell has Extensive Experience Litigating Against the State and Federal Government 

McKay Chadwell has the resources to handle civil matters large and complex, or small and straightforward. For instance, McKay Chadwell has served as the court-appointed receiver for one of Washington State's largest Ponzi fraud schemes. In that capacity, we recovered $75 million and distributed the funds to more than 6,000 victims. 

We have prosecuted and defended First and Fourth Amendment civil rights claims, including acting as counsel for federal employees facing Bivens liability. We have litigated government contract fraud and breach of contract disputes located in Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, and Singapore. We successfully resolved a multi-million dollar fraud claim on behalf of an entity that acquired an international pharmaceutical business. 

Closer to home, we have recently helped several businesses resolve internal disputes and negotiate the distribution of assets.

McKay Chadwell attorneys provide legal counsel for businesses, executives, and healthcare professionals throughout Washington. We are accessible and client-focused. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange for a consultation on your legal matter.
