Internal Investigations

In today’s heightened enforcement climate, proceedings can change from regulatory/administrative to criminal in the blink of an eye.  Increasingly, prosecutors seek to indict corporate entities and target high-level officers and directors for prosecution and jail.  Our substantial experience has earned us the confidence of top executives and officials in numerous high-profile investigations:  Enron, Halliburton, the UN Iraq Oil-for-Food Programme, America Online, Banca Privada de Andorra, FIFA, and others.

In this environment, our clients rely on us because we provide sophisticated counsel and keen strategic planning.  Our skilled criminal defense attorneys leave no stone unturned in exploring every potential legal and strategic defense.  A vigorous defense should begin before charges are filed and should seek to forestall charges through investigation, negotiation, and legal advocacy.  Sometimes, a thorough internal investigation can lead to a defense that will convince the government not to proffer charges.  When charges cannot be avoided, our lawyers can rely on decades of courtroom experience to force the government to prove its case.
