White Collar Litigation & Government Investigations

Our white collar litigation and government investigations team represents clients in a range of federal and state investigations, civil litigation, criminal trials, enforcement actions, regulatory inquiries, and internal investigations. They are seasoned defense lawyers who are among the leaders in their profession, acknowledged by peers and clients alike through fellowship in the American College of Trial Lawyers and recognition in high-profile publications such as Chambers. The practice comprises lawyers with strong government backgrounds, including former US Department of Justice (DOJ) assistant attorneys general, US attorneys, federal prosecutors and supervisors from numerous US Attorneys' Offices, senior enforcement attorneys and supervisors from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), state prosecutors, and leaders from other government agencies.

We focus first on resolving a client’s problem without charges being filed, litigation, or adverse publicity. We quickly and effectively get to the heart of issues, and we leverage our credibility with the enforcement community on behalf of our clients. But when litigation or trial is called for, our lawyers bring a wealth of courtroom experience. Our clients include Fortune 100 companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors and retail chains, major healthcare institutions, medical device manufacturers, financial institutions, broker-dealers, hedge funds, insurance companies, manufacturers of consumer and industrial products, consumer products companies, retailers, transportation and logistics companies, aerospace and defense contractors, public officials, professionals, and executives, among many others.
