Our Government Enforcement and Internal Investigations group represents clients in all aspects of governmental investigations, regulatory enforcement and compliance matters, as well as clients in need of an internal investigation. Members of our group include the former head of the United States Department of Justice’s Criminal Division, former federal prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the Southern and Eastern District of New York, and attorneys from the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Our client engagements have involved both corporate and individual liability in areas ranging from financial and banking crimes, securities fraud and insider trading, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Act, pension fund and health care fraud to public corruption offenses, federal campaign finance law violations, tax fraud, money laundering, racketeering, antitrust, and environmental crimes. They also include suspension and debarment proceedings, and other related parallel proceedings and are local, regional, national, and international in scope.
Given our Firm’s longstanding expertise in the financial services industry, we have represented CEOs, CCOs, investment advisers, investment funds, hedge funds, banks, investment banks and broker-dealers. With the evolving regulatory and enforcement landscape confronting the financial services and other industries, our clients rely on our depth of experience to help them every step of the way, from investigation through trial, if necessary.
We also work with clients in creating comprehensive compliance and auditing programs, covering a broad array of topics such as FCPA, cybersecurity, insider trading, OSHA, and Environmental issues. Such programs help clients comply with regulatory requirements and can mitigate the consequences of violations of law.
