Our practice focuses on internal corporate investigations, compliance counseling and white collar criminal defense. Led by the former Chief of the Special Prosecution Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey and a former county prosecutor, we have conducted numerous internal investigations to assist both public and private clients in detecting and reporting on employee misconduct in violation of internal policies and potential violations of criminal law.
We have developed particular expertise in conducting internal investigations for colleges and universities in New Jersey. For example, we were retained by a prominent university to conduct an independent investigation regarding allegations of improper access to computer systems and files in the admission department of another university. The comprehensive and efficient representation in this matter resulted in no civil or criminal actions being filed.
We regularly work with our corporate clients before issues arise, in counseling them to institute training and compliance procedures to minimize civil liability and exposure to violations of criminal law. We often work with a company’s in-house or general outside counsel to accomplish the objectives that the client seeks to achieve.
Our attorneys defend companies and individuals in federal and state grand jury investigations and have earned an excellent reputation for our work in business, financial, and corruption cases. We have been particularly successful at the pre-indictment stage, persuading state and federal prosecutors not to bring charges against our clients. Our practice encompasses the defense of prosecutions relating to government fraud, health-care fraud, tax fraud, environmental violations, insider trading, bank fraud, securities fraud, antitrust, commercial bribery, and RICO violations.
