Governance & Intelligence / Corporate Intelligence & Investigations / Economic Offenses & White Collar Crime Investigations

With fluctuating economic conditions and a complex regulatory regime, financial crimes have become a serious challenge for businesses operating across the country today. From inadvertent breaches at the employee level to non-compliance of criminal law provisions resulting in institutional failure –legal challenges are vast and multifarious, and the stakes often very high.

Defense attorneys often come from the government, which makes this area of practice one with more senior attorneys, who aid their clients through government investigations, compliance issues, and possibly trial. The community of white collar practitioners is considered smaller and they "all know each other."

Conducting internal or external investigations is a substantial piece of the work of a white collar lawyer. In-house investigations may involve the drafting and implementation of investigation policies and protocols and the management of resources issues — regulatory expectations by the government as well as compliance resources.
