White Collar Defense

The United States is witnessing a dramatic increase in the investigation and prosecution of business institutions and their executives and employees. Federal and state prosecutors and regulators, armed with new statutes and increased penalties, have placed institutions and individuals under great scrutiny in virtually every industry. The lawyers in Bracewell’s White Collar Defense, Internal Investigations and Regulatory Enforcement Practice possess the skills and experience critical to conducting internal investigations for companies and their audit or special board committees, defending clients in the face of a criminal, civil or regulatory investigation or prosecution and to developing, reviewing and auditing corporate compliance programs to minimize the risk of violations of laws or regulations and, if subject to a government investigation, to reducing the likelihood of prosecution. The substantive matters we handle are broad and include the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; environmental crimes; broker-dealer violations, accounting and financial fraud; government contracts and false claims act/Qui Tammatters; healthcare fraud; tax issues; and antitrust issues.
