Many of our clients are professional people with careers in the medical, legal, or financial fields; government; or law enforcement who have never experienced the criminal justice system from the point of view of a defendant. When they are investigated for or accused of criminal offenses related to their work, they find themselves in treacherous territory with much more at stake than defendants accused of more pedestrian offenses.
Not only are defendants’ freedoms at stake, but also careers, reputations, and professional licenses, and they potentially face monetary penalties. While our first priority is always to protect a client’s liberty, we are exceedingly sensitive to these other collateral consequences of investigation and prosecution as we represent our clients.
White-collar crimes are complex and immediately impact your business and your life. You need representation that understands the nature of the investigation and the potential charges and can proactively act on your behalf.
White-collar crimes include:
- Antitrust violations
- Credit card fraud
- Export Control Act violations
- Extradition proceedings
- False Claims Act litigation
- Fraud, including bank, bankruptcy, securities, computer and internet, credit card, insurance, mail and wire, and tax
- Money laundering
- Parallel proceedings
- RICO actions
- Securities offenses
- Tax evasion
Our lawyers have the skills and experience you need. Defending businesses and individuals against white-collar criminal investigations, prosecutions, and other enforcement actions are at the core of our practice. Our clients benefit from our attorneys’ reputation, expert knowledge of the laws, and familiarity with the offices and agencies that enforce those laws.
