The White Collar Criminal Defense practice represents companies and individuals in complex white collar criminal investigations and trials, and in civil and administrative enforcement proceedings. Our attorneys defend corporate and individual clients against white collar criminal allegations in a range of contexts, including grand jury investigations by federal and state prosecutors. Most of these representations are never disclosed since charges are never filed. If an indictment is filed, we will defend the charge at trial or attempt to obtain a suitable disposition.
The government has blurred the line between criminal and civil or administrative offenses. The use of the criminal process as an extension of more traditional and less intrusive methods of regulatory oversight has greatly increased the risk of conducting business. Conduct that results in parallel criminal and civil enforcement investigations requires a sophisticated and thorough level of representation. Becker & Poliakoff's attorneys are able to offer clients both depth and breadth of experience in the area of white collar criminal and regulatory defense.
