The Investigations and White Collar Defense practice at Taylor Porter represents individual and corporate clients in complex criminal and civil litigation and enforcement cases throughout the country, and at every stage of criminal investigations and court proceedings in both federal and state venues. 

Often the best resolution of a criminal matter is achieved when no formal charges are ever brought, and our attorneys have experience in designing and implementing strategies during grand jury investigations to avoid indictments.

Covering the full range of white collar issues, our attorneys are familiar with the regulators and enforcement authorities with whom our clients interact, and we regularly work with colleagues in our firm’s regulatory, compliance, corporate, and government affairs practices to assist clients in various issues.

When helping clients with investigations and white collar defense, our attorneys are well-equipped to:

  • Counsel clients on appropriate ways to stave off investigations through proactive disclosures or respond to subpoenas issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ), state attorneys general, and other government agencies.
  • Respond to grand jury subpoenas and search warrants and other requests for information.
  • Prepare clients for grand jury testimony and interviews.
  • Negotiate non-prosecution, deferred prosecution and plea agreements pre-indictment;
  • Handle all aspects of trial, sentencing and appeal, and litigation.

Our other representative matters include:

  • Anti-money laundering
  • Antitrust – Criminal
  • Compliance and internal controls
  • Consumer fraud
  • Environmental crimes
  • False Claims Act
  • Federal government agency investigations (DOJ, SEC, Inspectors General)
  • Government contracts and procurement fraud
  • Grand jury investigations
  • Healthcare and pharmaceutical enforcement
  • Internal corporate investigations
  • Public corruption
  • State attorney general investigations
  • Tax fraud
  • Trials and appeals

Our Investigations and White Collar Defense attorneys work with clients to take proactive measures to protect themselves from civil or criminal liability and also assist clients with the implementation of compliance programs to help them avoid legal trouble. To minimize any business disruption or negative publicity, our attorneys work to resolve these investigations quickly and favorably, prior to adverse action, and our familiarity with regulatory processes enables us to develop strategies towards privilege waiver and other sensitive issues.
