White Collar Litigation
Experience has shown that with every white collar criminal case, there is likely a civil case, as well as administrative or regulatory case, the defense of which must be carefully coordinated. Our attorneys focus on counseling clients through grand jury and other government investigations, as well as defense of individuals and corporations charged with business-related offenses, including antitrust violations, health care fraud, financial fraud, securities fraud, tax fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, environmental crimes, public corruption, campaign finance, defense contract fraud, export control, OFAC economic sanctions, Federal False Claims Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act matters. In particular, the Federal Sentencing Guidelines create complex issues for targets of a white collar crime investigation, especially if that target is a corporation. If an indictment is unavoidable, our team has the litigation experience and resources to mount an aggressive defense.
