White Collar & Regulatory Defense, Internal Investigations and Compliance

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling a wide range of government and internal investigations. Our team, which includes two former Assistant U.S. Attorneys from the Southern District of New York, has represented corporations and individuals in a variety of government investigations, and regulatory and enforcement actions. We are experienced in a broad range of substantive areas, including antitrust, insider trading, securities fraud, bank and financial fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, government contract fraud, stock market manipulation, tax fraud and RICO. We have appeared before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), self-regulatory organizations, and federal, state and local prosecutors. Our lawyers are also prepared to respond to the parallel regulatory and civil proceedings that often accompany criminal investigations.

We also counsel clients on how to conduct effective internal investigations and proactively implement and enforce corporate governance and compliance programs. We have represented corporate management and boards of directors in conducting internal investigations involving allegations of improper compliance procedures, corporate malfeasance, conflicts of interest and insider trading.

As part of our broader litigation practice, we also have significant experience defending securities and commercial litigation matters in federal and state courts. We have achieved favorable outcomes for a wide range of financial services companies – including accounting firms, hedge funds, banks and brokerage firms, in various financial services disputes. We have won cases through trials (bench and jury), as well as dispositive motion practice.
