We help clients stay out of legal trouble by defending those facing serious allegations of malfeasance from private plaintiffs and government agencies. We take on cases where clients are accused of misappropriating funds and face severe civil and criminal penalties.
Our strength comes from an ability to craft novel defenses involving difficult accusations of securities fraud, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, bribery, insider trading, and the like. We are immersed in statutes, regulations, and federal common law, and we appreciate their ambiguities and weaknesses.
Clients come to us when their wealth and freedom are in jeopardy, knowing that we will defend them ethically and relentlessly.
