Our veteran defense lawyers, who formerly served as government prosecutors, bring to the table a bounty of investigative, litigation and appeals skills. Our collective experience enables us to rapidly respond to potential issues ranging from surprise visits and subpoenas to formulating exhaustive investigative and trial/appellate defense strategies, as well as corrective plans to comply with complex regulatory issues. We prepare witnesses for grand jury and trial testimony, respond to subpoenas and search warrants and negotiate grants of immunity to protect our clients’ rights.
We handle matters involving allegations of securities and other financial frauds, insider trading, stock manipulation, money laundering, RICO violations, healthcare fraud, mail and wire fraud, pollution and other environmental crimes, as well as False Claims Act, Internet/computer crimes, bribery and official corruption allegations, Medicare and Medicaid fraud, anti-kickback allegations, financial institution and insurance fraud and U.S. Customs violations, to name a few. We also perform internal investigations and design compliance programs for corporate clients to avoid adverse consequences of government inquiries.
