What We've Done

U.S. Civil Service Commission:

Mr. Horvick's investigative career began during the Carter Administration, when he was a member of the team assembled by the Special Counsel to investigate allegations of equal employment opportunity violations and related merit abuses at the Civil Service Commission.

Three Mile Island:
In 1979, Mr. Horvick became a member of the independent Special Inquiry Group sponsored by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission ("NRC") to investigate the partial meltdown of the core of Unit 2 at the Three Mile Island nuclear generating station near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. After intense and extensive study, a report was drafted to the NRC's Commissioner and the public providing the findings and recommendations of the Special Inquiry Group. The report called for a major reorganization of the NRC's structure and management. Mr. Horvick assisted in the drafting of sections of the report concerning the design of the reactor containment building's control panel.

Hostile Takeovers and Due Diligence:
In the 1980's, Mr. Horvick managed the in-house investigative and research team of a Washington, D.C. law firm. The team developed information used by major public corporations to defend themselves against hostile takeovers. The team also assisted Wall Street investment bankers and institutional investors in their due diligence investigations of senior executives.
