White Collar & Regulatory Law

We’re seeing an increasing number of government investigations of businesses in every sector escalated to criminal prosecutions. In particular, technology companies that have largely operated with minimal regulatory oversight are now finding themselves targeted under various criminal statutes – including allegations involving First Amendment concerns, data privacy, deceptive trade practices and antitrust litigation.

But regardless of your business, it’s more important than ever to rely on experienced counsel who can assess your compliance practices and minimize the risk of investigations and related litigation.

Backed with our deep knowledge of the regulatory environment, we can help you prepare for the high level of scrutiny and possible reputational damage that such investigations can bring in today’s highly competitive marketplace.

Let's Talk.
