Firm Accomplishments

Arseneault & Fassett, LLP has achieved extraordinary results for its corporate and individual clients in a wide variety of complex criminal, civil and regulatory matters.

Most of our successes are not publicly known because we persuaded prosecuting or regulatory authorities not to pursue charges and/or resolved disputes on favorable terms quickly, efficiently and privately. When litigation serves our clients’ interests, however, we have consistently achieved remarkable results in the courtroom.

Highlighted below are some of our public achievements:
  • On pre-answer motion, a judgment dismissing in its entirety a federal antitrust complaint alleging attempted monopolization against a supermarket chain. (October 2014)
  • On appeal, a judgment reversing state computer fraud convictions and, on remand, a noncriminal resolution of all charges against a government employee. (September 2014)
