Bill Ojile, a member of the Litigation practice group, has over 25 years of experience advising, counseling and litigating on behalf of companies, often in highly regulated environments, helping them to resolve difficult legal and policy issues.
He has managed significant disputes both as in-house and outside counsel. These disputes have required Bill to oversee large teams of people managing legal, administrative, public relations and legislative issues, as well as formulating strategic direction, often simultaneously. For example, as General Counsel of Westwood College he managed multiple class action lawsuits, two wide-ranging Attorney General investigations (one of which settled, the other of which went to litigation), a Department of Education CID, a probation order from the College’s accrediting body, multiple state regulatory proceedings and hearings before the Senate HELP Committee, all of which were initiated in a 30 month time period and most of which overlapped. These matters required Bill to meet regularly with state and federal elected officials, state and federal administrative agencies and representatives of accrediting bodies.
