Practices: White Collar Defense & Government Investigations

Protect Yourself

White Collar Defense & Government Investigations

In the age of whistleblowers, tip lines and the 24-hour news cycle (not to mention hyper-vigilant regulators and prosecutors), more people than ever are minding your business. Know what to do when the spotlight turns your way.

Back to Practices

Today, allegations of corporate and other misconduct are an unfortunate fact of corporate and public life – for the innocent as well as the guilty.  When it all hits the fan, only experienced judgment can preserve your reputation, livelihood and liberty.  Our lawyers have more than 30 years of it – including substantial experience at the Department of Justice.  We’ve helped hundreds of companies, officers, directors, employees, advisors and public officials prevent and respond to allegations of wrongdoing.

Our approach is three-pronged: 1) a tight compliance program to prevent misconduct and improve your negotiating position; 2) comprehensive internal investigations (voluntary or mandated) to assess the extent of any problems; and 3) creative negotiating tactics to minimize damage.  And our strategies are as global as your business footprint.  Operating from international government and financial centers, we work with clients across North America, Europe and Asia to coordinate complex multijurisdictional compliance programs and regulatory responses.

When a favorable agreement can’t be reached, we advocate zealously on your behalf before courts and juries, the Department of Justice, the SEC and other administrative and regulatory agencies, as well as Congressional oversight committees.  Our lawyers handle matters involving:

  • Accounting fraud
  • Antitrust
