From Capitol Hill to the courtroom, Brownstein’s White Collar Group protects and defends companies, their officers and employees by providing a comprehensive, strategic approach to legal representation related to federal and state criminal and related investigations. From counsel to litigation, our goal is to seek the best possible resolution for our clients.
Tapping extensive experience in both litigation and government relations, the group defends clients from charges related to corporate misconduct, business crimes, financial scandals, securities fraud, bank fraud, other alleged corporate malfeasance and various other corporate criminal proceedings. Our practice also includes dealing with issues related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, including all associated investigations and enforcement actions, and large-scale crisis management.
When facing an inquiry or investigation, it is invaluable to have a team of former federal prosecutors on your side. The White Collar Group is adept at representing clients in complex criminal and civil investigations before Congress, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission (including merger proceedings), federal inspector generals, state attorneys general and before federal and state courts.
Our approach emphasizes conflict avoidance and pre-trial resolutions. Our White Collar Group helps clients avoid malfeasance by consulting on issues related to health care and securities regulation, antitrust, corporate accounting, taxation, environmental compliance and both domestic and foreign government procurement.
