White Collar Defense
Companies and corporate executives continue to face unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the worldwide financial meltdown. Our white collar defense attorneys guide clients through a broad range of sensitive issues, including high stakes internal and government investigations. Our practice includes former federal prosecutors and trial lawyers who have experience working on both sides of the courtroom and use their unique perspectives to successfully navigate through complex investigations. Clients benefit from this first hand experience as it allows us to prevent charges from being brought, negotiate favorable pre-trial resolutions, and provide an aggressive defense at trial when necessary.
