When a company receives a civil investigative demand (CID) from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), they have an important decision to make – settle early or fight back against the demand. Both options come with risks and benefits that must be carefully weighed.
A CID is an administrative subpoena issued by the FTC to obtain information and documents during an investigation into potential violations of consumer protection laws. The FTC has broad authority to issue CIDs without court oversight. Once a company receives a CID they face short deadlines to produce materials or face court-ordered compliance actions.
When hit with a CID, some companies opt to settle quickly instead of challenging the FTC’s demands. There are advantages and disadvantages to early settlement.
Settling immediately can save a company money and headaches down the road. It also gives them certainty instead of leaving things open and ongoing.
On the other hand, jumping to settle right away also has disadvantages. The company loses leverage and oversight, while the FTC gains a precedent to extract settlements from others.

There are also strategic motivations for challenging demands. Pushing back signals the company won’t just roll over, while seeking evidence could undermine the FTC’s core allegations.
There are compelling cases to be made for either settling quickly or challenging FTC civil investigative demands. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. When hit with a CID, keep these key factors in mind:
Carefully weighing these risks and benefits will lead to the most informed decision when faced with the daunting choice of how to respond to an FTC civil investigative demand.
