White Collar Criminal Defense
The federal and state governments are dedicating attention to the investigation and prosecution of corporations and their officers, directors and employees. Led by experienced trial lawyers and former federal, state, and local prosecutors, Gordon & Rees's White Collar Defense Group has the civil, criminal, and regulatory expertise required to achieve successful outcomes at trial, and, often more importantly, before charges are filed and investigations become public.
Gordon & Rees has attorneys in many of its offices with extensive experience in criminal law and special operations, both as prosecutors and defense lawyers. The Group's attorneys include former prosecutors from the United States Attorney's Offices, state district attorney offices and local district attorney offices. Our background includes counseling and representing clients in all aspects of the white collar practice, including, but not limited to, internal audits and investigations, corporate compliance programs, regulatory and administrative enforcement actions, grand jury investigations, and criminal trials.
Our White Collar Defense attorneys provide representation in state and federal investigations and prosecutions, as well as cases before self regulatory agencies such as the SEC, FINRA/NASD, FCC and CFP, and federal and state securities divisions. Our attorneys represent clients in insurance, banking, finance, real estate, food products, sports, media and entertainment, and health care industries. Our White Collar Defense team frequently authors articles on developments in White Collar Defense, and is regularly contacted by leading publications, such as Thomson/Reuters, for advice on the most important White Collar related issues facing corporate America. Our partners frequently publish articles and chapters in White Collar practice guides and reference books.
Our White Collar Defense attorneys utilize the expertise of other practice areas in the firm. For example, attorneys from the firm's Insurance, Financial Services and Employment Groups frequently collaborate with our White Collar Defense attorneys on D&O insurance, indemnity, and employment issues.
