Nicholas Flagler manages electronic discovery in the litigation practice at Miller & Chevalier, with a focus on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions.

Mr. Flagler's legal and project management experience spans all aspects of discovery, investigation, document management, witness interviews, complex privilege analysis, fact development, and expert witness presentations.

Throughout his career, Mr. Flagler has worked at the intersection of law, technology, and policy.
