White Collar and Criminal Defense

White Collar and Criminal Defense

Share

Whether an investigation or prosecution is highly publicized or discreet, our clients rely on us to deliver the sophisticated representation and advocacy that they need.

As former prosecutors and experienced criminal defense attorneys, we understand the nature of investigations and prosecutions, along with the deep emotional and financial impact they have on our clients. That is why we always work to avoid prosecution, and many of the investigations of our clients remain private, resulting in no charges being levied. In the event that criminal charges or regulatory enforcement actions are brought, we deliver strategic representation and mount formidable defenses that put our clients in the best position to succeed.

White Collar Defense

Businesses and individuals, particularly those who practice in regulated industries such as banking, finance, healthcare and insurance, face intense scrutiny by prosecutors and government regulators. By utilizing the vast resources of our full-service law firm, including our experience in those areas and corporate and commercial litigation, cybersecurity, environmental, real estate and tax law, we are well-positioned to handle the most sophisticated matters. Together, we have effectively resolved countless criminal and governmental investigations, tried hundreds of criminal and civil trials in state and federal courts and resolved a wide range of matters in administrative proceedings.

We regularly represent clients against the Department of Justice, United States Attorneys’ Offices, States’ Attorneys General, District Attorneys and County Prosecutors, and regulatory agencies, such as the SEC, FINRA, Board of Medical Examiners and the Office of Attorney Ethics.

Businesses and public entities also frequently call on us to perform internal investigations and audits, and to provide the requisite advice that helps them comply with regulations and minimize their criminal and civil liability. Likewise, victims of fraud and abuse turn to us to recoup losses and obtain justice.
