White-CollarCriminal Defense

Our White-Collar Criminal Defense practice brings a rare combination of experience and knowledge to defend clients against white-collar criminal proceedings.

We help our clients:

  • Identify potential issues of concern to the U.S. Department of Justice
  • Stop investigations before clients are charged
  • Avoid indictment
  • Minimize exposure to the criminal system and civil sanctions
  • Restore the life of the client

Led by a former federal prosecutor and a former judge, our team offers invaluable insights drawn from comprehensive experience in industries ranging from healthcare and pharmaceuticals to construction and manufacturing. We understand the range of economic, personal and emotional challenges resulting from white-collar criminal allegations and provide strategic, intentional counsel on practical and procedural levels. Most importantly, we bring matters to a resolution that transforms the feelings of fear and panic into outcomes that benefit the client and give them peace of mind.

Court proceedings on TV can make anyone feel like they understand the implications of an accusation of healthcare fraud, bribery, bid rigging, tax fraud, price fixing or FCPA exposure. But make no mistake, in the real world, white-collar criminal cases have higher stakes and consequences. Achieving a favorable resolution is a complex process and a race against time. Even with the rapid change of technology and markets, there’s little we haven’t seen or experienced. And we use that knowledge to evaluate every case individually, make sound strategic decisions, and protect the business and lives of our clients.
