White Collar

Co-chaired by a former US attorney, the White Collar Practice Area consists of experienced attorneys who have collectively handled over 100 criminal trials as well as complex investigations. Our team assists clients who find themselves affected by state, federal, and international government investigations and enforcement proceedings that carry the risk of significant enforcement penalties. We represent businesses and individual clients in matters involving health care fraud, environmental crimes, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the False Claims Act, money laundering, RICO, tax, securities, and other white collar issues.

Our attorneys represent clients in all aspects of criminal defense matters, from the execution of search warrants and grand jury proceedings through trial and appeal. We also defend clients in parallel civil or administrative litigation that is frequently associated with criminal investigations. In these matters, our White Collar attorneys routinely interact with the full range state and federal enforcement and regulatory agencies.

Our attorneys conduct internal investigations to detect and prevent problems, allowing us to advise clients on the implementation of effective compliance programs. Preventing enforcement actions and criminal investigations through compliance programs and internal safeguards is a critical aspect of the White Collar Practice Area.

Our team additionally collaborates with other firm practice areas to provide industry-specific knowledge and experience that is critical to effectively representing clients and delivering the most comprehensive legal services possible.
