The role of the White Collar and Government Enforcement Practice
Attorneys in the White Collar and Government Enforcement Practice represent corporate and individual clients in government investigations, enforcement proceedings and litigation. We defend those accused of crime in the course of occupational activities, civil-fraud proceedings, and regulatory-enforcement matters. We also provide compliance counseling to companies in regulated industries.
Members of the White Collar team include attorneys whose combined government service and defense experience help them to understand the way prosecutors view cases and to respond to the investigative tools they use. We can anticipate, and are prepared for, legal issues that might arise, including those that come up suddenly, such as:
- Search warrants
Regulatory issues: Keeping up to date
Good counsel requires a thorough understanding of the regulatory environment in which a business operates. Our attorneys have extensive subject-matter experience in the industries they serve, and invest the time necessary to stay ahead of the regulations as they evolve and change. We counsel and represent clients in industries such as:
- Financial services
We defend allegations of regulatory offenses in connection with securities, banking, environmental law, government contracts, food and drug, tax and antitrust law.
Compliance: Sophisticated strategies
Our White Collar and Government Enforcement Practice attorneys evaluate clients' potential compliance risks and devise strategies to mitigate consequences. We also perform internal investigations for clients in response to governmental inquiries, whistleblower allegations, and company concerns about wrongdoing. Should formal charges of business crimes or regulatory offenses be filed, we represent clients at trial or resolve the situation through negotiation.
