Comprised of experienced enforcement and investigations lawyers as well as former judges, our team conducts high-quality internal investigations for boards of directors, board committees, corporations and individuals in connection with financial services regulatory and compliance matters, government enforcement actions and allegations of workplace harassment and discrimination.

Financial Services Investigations

We conduct sensitive and complex investigations relating to, among other matters, public company accounting practices, insider trading, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-bribery/anti-money laundering compliance, consumer fraud and sales and trading compliance. Our experience extends to conducting investigations in response to putative whistleblowers. We regularly counsel our clients regarding potential self-reporting obligations.

Government Enforcement Actions

We advise clients that are subject to civil and criminal investigations, including those brought by state attorneys general and multi-jurisdictional investigations. Our team, which includes a former New York State Attorney General, a former DOJ prosecutor and DOJ’s first Special Counsel for Financial Institutions Crime, represents clients in alleged federal racketeering, securities violations, tax evasion, bribery, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, money laundering, environmental offenses and customs violations.

Government Contracting

We assist clients in conducting internal investigations relating to procurement contracts, whether self-initiated or in response to a government audit, inquiry, subpoena, or claim. This includes analyzing obligations under the mandatory disclosure rules applicable to federal contractors.

Workplace Issues

Organizations must have strong preventative measures in place to handle and respond to claims of workplace misconduct. Leveraging our extensive experience in this area, our team conducts tailored internal investigations and advises on handling claims. We represent clients in enforcement actions and civil and criminal proceedings.
