White-Collar Criminal Defense, Corporate Investigations and Regulatory Compliance
Individuals and corporations may unwittingly run afoul of the law and government regulations. Ordinary commercial disputes can give rise to allegations of fraud and abuse. Grand jury subpoenas may be directed at innocent targets and present logistical record-gathering challenges for legitimate business. Clients who find themselves accused of Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse, environmental crimes, securities law violations, criminal tax fraud, fraud in government procurement, criminal antitrust and RICO violations, trade espionage and a variety of business-related offenses, require experienced counsel who understand the legal and professional ramifications of such acquisitions and procedures.
