How a Former DEA Special Agent-in-Charge Can Help Your Business

As a former Special Agent-in-Charge with more than 30 years of experience inside the DEA, Mr. Hunt’s insights are invaluable for companies and individuals that are facing DEA scrutiny. He consults with pharmacies, health care providers, and other entities and individuals on matters including:

  • Drug Diversion Investigations – Combatting drug diversion is a long-standing DEA priority. If the DEA is targeting your business (or you personally) for diversion, Mr. Hunt can help you strategize and make sound decisions.
  • Administrative, Civil, and Criminal Enforcement Proceedings – Beyond drug diversion investigations, Mr. Hunt consults with clients on a broad range of other administrative, civil and criminal enforcement proceedings involving the DEA. This includes proceedings initiated under the CSA, DSCSA, and other federal drug laws.
  • Federal Drug Law Compliance – Hunt also consults with clients regarding all aspects of federal drug law compliance. If you want to mitigate your business’s risk of facing DEA scrutiny (and be prepared to withstand DEA scrutiny when necessary), Mr. Hunt can help.
