In today’s complex and highly regulated business environment, corporations must respond to government investigations of corporate conduct and, on occasion, alleged crimes committed by their “white collar” business members. Therefore it is imperative to first understand the basic crimes that define this type of legal turmoil and, more importantly, how to protect your business from an unexpected investigation.
As a corporate law firm, Troutman Sanders recognizes the need and importance for maintaining a stellar White Collar and Government Investigations practice. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in successfully representing our clients, both corporations and individuals, in complex federal and state criminal investigations; government agency investigations; internal investigations; and civil and regulatory proceedings, both in the United States and abroad.
In addition to providing value through our experience, we offer a cross-disciplinary team of lawyers, which includes former prosecutors; leaders of corporate compliance program “best practices” initiatives, and lauded litigation partners with decades of experience.
Our proactive commitment to our clients involves educating and identifying the risks and red flags of white collar crimes. When white collar and government investigations do occur, our approach to successful representation includes – getting the facts right; responding quickly with reliable and compelling detail; anticipating litigation and law enforcement issues; and, though adept at litigation avoidance, providing highly-skilled litigators when matters must be resolved in the courtroom.
Within our White Collar practice, we have extensive experience in various substantive areas, which allows us to service our clients’ needs with the precise combination of skill and knowledge to handle government inquiries in any industry setting.
