He handles all phases of civil litigation, provides corporate compliance advice and conducts internal investigations. Boughrum represents companies and individuals in a wide variety of litigation matters and government investigations, and has experience in pharmaceuticals and medical devices, electronic payment transactions, industrial equipment, scientific testing, food product manufacture and distribution, residential and commercial construction, consumer and household products, and sporting goods.
