Our Investigations & Business Crimes Group is comprised of former prosecutors and corporate lawyers with global capability and proven track records. As investigations increasingly involve multiple jurisdictions, foreign law constraints and parallel proceedings, our lawyers have substantial experience coordinating international cases under tight deadlines in challenging settings around the world.
We have extensive experience conducting independent corporate investigations, advising audit committees and outside directors on fiduciary duties and representing corporations, officers and directors in criminal investigations and prosecutions. We also advise companies on SEC disclosure, self-reporting, corporate governance and internal controls issues as well as defend them in class actions and other suits that often follow criminal allegations.
Working with our lawyers around the world, we assemble litigation teams that best serve each client’s specific legal and geographic needs. We regularly prevail in criminal proceedings before national and regional courts as well as cases involving government authorities, such as the US Department of Justice.
Areas of practice include FCPA and foreign bribery, cartel prosecutions, antitrust investigations and amnesty, SEC enforcement and securities, other internal corporate investigations and board representation, criminal tax defense, money laundering and financial crimes, whistleblower and False Claims Act matters, criminal environmental defense, healthcare matters, employment practices and other government prosecutions.
