Mia N. Gonzalez is a member of the White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations practice group. She represents individuals and companies in complex, high-stakes corporate internal investigations, and criminal and regulatory matters, including investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice, the New York Attorney General, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and various self-regulatory organizations. In addition, she represents clients in civil litigation and has an active pro bono practice.

Mia’s illustrative professional experience includes the following: 

White Collar

  • Represents a global financial institution in responding to a variety of investigations conducted by the U.S. government, the New York Attorney General’s Office, and industry regulators related to aspects of the client’s broker-dealer business. 
  • Represented a major global automotive company in an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding alleged false statements to the company’s primary regulator. The government closed its three-year investigation with no adverse findings against the company and no penalty.
  • Represented a global technology company in connection with a wide-scale bribery investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice across a broad range of jurisdictions. The government closed its multi-year investigation with no adverse findings against the company and no penalty.

  • Represented a public company’s Audit Committee and advised the Board of Directors in an internal investigation concerning potential insider trading.

Civil Litigation

  • Represents US Airways, now part of American Airlines Group Inc., in its antitrust litigation against Sabre, a global distribution services company.  Mia was part of the O’Melveny trial team that won a jury verdict for US Airways in December 2016, following an 8-week trial.  In 2019, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the jury verdict because of intervening Supreme Court precedent and reinstated a US Airways’ claim that had previously been dismissed.  Mia continues to represent US Airways/American Airlines in the pending litigation.
  • Represented a major airline in a DOJ challenge to a proposed merger.
  • Represented a leading personal computer and software designer and manufacturer in an antitrust lawsuit alleging price fixing brought by the DOJ, state attorneys general, and private plaintiffs.  The case involved a three-week bench trial.
