White Collar Defense
While the firm can assist clients in a variety of areas, we specialize in representing clients involved in government investigations, enforcement actions, and prosecutions. Our clients can be involved as either witnesses, victims, or defendants in civil or criminal enforcement cases. And, when the government is pursuing both civil and criminal cases arising out of the same conduct, we can effectively manage parallel cases to ensure a fair result.
Using our extensive experience in high-level positions both within and outside of government, we can assist clients in a wide variety of substantive areas, including:
- Cyber Enforcement and Regulation
- Financial Fraud
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
- Healthcare Fraud
- Money Laundering
- Public Corruption
- Securities and Commodities Fraud
Our substantive expertise, prior experience working with law enforcement, and courtroom skills enables clients to successfully navigate white collar legal problems.
Compliance Counseling and Monitor Services
We also specialize in providing compliance counseling and monitor services to companies and agencies seeking to promote integrity and ethical conduct. The government and courts regularly focus on the effectiveness of compliance programs in determining whether to impose sanctions and/or a monitor. Effective compliance is a dynamic concept that changes over time and depends on building, sustaining, and preserving a culture of integrity throughout an organization.
To ensure clients can appropriately adapt and build such a culture, we provide the following services:
- Internal investigations
- Whistleblower/Hotline Complaint Investigations
- Compliance Program Reviews
- Integrity Monitoring
When potential or actual misconduct has occurred, taking appropriate and timely remedial action to mitigate harm can be critical to achieving better results for the organization. We can assist clients in assessing and implementing remedial measures and in responding to the government when needed.
We can also serve as a Monitor or join Monitor teams entrusted with ensuring that organizations comply with corporate resolutions with the government, court orders, regulatory requirements, or other compliance measures designed to address and reduce the risk of similar misconduct happening again. Our corporate compliance and enforcement experience provides useful insights to companies, government agencies, and courts seeking a valuable, independent monitor.
