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 Yorkand a former head of investigations for a Fortune 500 company, has represented corporations and individuals in a variety of government and internal 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, insurance fraud, government contract fraud, stock market manipulation, tax fraud, RICO, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, #metoo, workplace violence and workplace safety, gender, national origin, religious, sexual preference, disability and racial discrimination. 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.

We have extensive experience in employment investigations of all kinds, including internal investigations to respond to attorney demand letters and to claims filed with the government agencies. In addition, our attorneys have represented employers in OSHA investigations and administrative proceedings. The resolution of many employment issues need not involve litigation if they are discovered early and addressed before they get to the litigation stage. Recognizing warning signs and proactively investigating employment situations before they ripen into litigation can not only save time and money with respect to individual employees, but can result in better and more productive relations with employees.

We also counsel clients on how to conduct effective internal investigations and proactively implement and enforce corporate governance and compliance programs.

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.
