White Collar Criminal Defense

Our White Collar Criminal Defense practice represents individuals and corporations in state, federal, and transnational investigations, criminal prosecutions, and civil litigation. We have broad experience defending clients and representing witnesses in cases alleging money laundering, insider trading, bank fraud, securities fraud, health care fraud, insurance fraud, tax evasion, embezzlement, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).  

Our corporate clients know they can rely on our investigative expertise to conduct thorough and confidential internal investigations.  Our internal investigations team includes counsel with extensive experience in digital investigations of potential evidence across corporate information technology systems, social media, laptops, smartphones and electronic devices of all varieties, with full forensics and attentive to available privilege protection.  This experience ranges from internal investigations of individual employee misconduct to investigations in connection with government subpoenas or investigations of alleged corporate misfeasance and malfeasance.  For clients facing active government investigations, we are experienced in preparations for – and reaction to – government raids on corporate offices in multiple jurisdictions.
The White Collar Criminal Defense practice is led by former federal and state prosecutors and regulators who are knowledgeable and zealous trial and appellate advocates.  Our team includes lawyers with prior government regulatory responsibility for ensuring compliance with federal anti-money laundering and sanctions laws and regulations.
