Ethics & Confidential Investigations

There is no more sobering call than one from the FBI or a regulator with unlimited resources

Law enforcement and regulatory investigations can be life altering to those enduring them. What is just another day to investigators is frightening to those being investigated, many times for the first time in their professional lives.

We have conducted internal investigations on behalf of companies, municipalities and ethics boards, and counseled those facing alleged civil and criminal white-collar wrongdoing.

Clients have included public officials, legislators, judges, nursing home operators, doctors, lawyers (facing complaints filed by the Committee On Professional Standards), and many other licensed professionals. Investigating bodies have included federal and state criminal and regulatory agencies (U.S. Attorney’s offices, the New York State Attorney General’s Office and district attorney’s offices), as well as other federal and state regulatory agencies.

Subjects have involved a wide array of white-collar criminal and regulatory issues, including investigations of:

  • Public corruption and ethics violations
  • Securities fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Deceptive practices and consumer fraud
  • False Claims Act violations
  • Insurance fraud
  • Whistleblower complaints
  • Employee misconduct
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Regulatory violations

When risks and consequences are high, take solace that we have been there before.
