Our White Collar group represents individuals and corporations in grand jury and administrative enforcement proceedings, criminal trials, and internal investigations in state and federal venues.
Government enforcement activities in the U.S. and throughout the world are increasingly aggressive. Matters historically handled through civil or regulatory processes are now resulting in criminal investigations. And authorities are increasingly reaching under a broad range of circumstances to suspend or exclude uncharged executives and corporate officers from practicing within entire industries.
The best result for clients is to avoid any prosecution, and our experience with compliance programs helps our clients prevent the development of criminal problems with guidance on best practices. However, when problems do develop, we help our clients navigate the difficult process of investigation and prosecution. We also have the experience to assist clients with the parallel proceedings, civil litigation, or congressional investigations that usually accompany criminal and government enforcement activity.
Importantly, our team includes experienced practitioners in historically and increasingly regulated industries and fields such as healthcare, food and drug, financial institutions, government contracts, technology, hospitality, and environmental law.
