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 and state prosecutors, Gordon & Rees' White Collar Defense Group has the civil, criminal, and regulatory expertise required to achieve successful outcomes both at trial, and, often more importantly, before charges are filed and investigations become public.
The background of the Group's attorneys includes counseling and representing clients in all aspects of criminal law practice, including defending individuals charged with state and federal crimes as well as defending corporate clients in connection with internal audits and investigations, corporate compliance programs, regulatory and administrative enforcement actions, and grand jury investigations. Our White Collar Defense attorneys also handle preliminary hearings and trials at both the state and federal court levels as well as cases before self regulatory agencies such as the SEC, FINRA/NASD, FCC and CFP.
Our White Collar Defense attorneys often collaborate with attorneys from the firm's Insurance, Financial Services and Employment Groups in connection with D&O insurance, indemnity, and employment issues. They focus on achieving the most cost efficient and effective resolution of the matter for the client whether that be prior to the filing of an action or taking the matter through a full-scale criminal proceeding.'
Most recently, attorneys in our White Collar Criminal Defense group have been actively involved in representing clients in connection with a number of confidential but high profile grand jury investigations and also have handled multiple criminal defense matters stemming from workplace fatalities.
