Investigations & White Collar Defense

Circumspect responses to serious problems.

We understand that government investigations can place you and your business in peril. We reliably identify problems and resolve government actions before they escalate out of control.

We represent individuals and businesses in a wide range of white collar cases and government investigations. Our white collar defense and investigations practice is based on Mark Sedlander’s extensive experience negotiating with federal and state prosecutors and regulators, and the firm’s significant trial experience. Our first priority is resolving government investigations before they escalate. However, if necessary, our experience enables us to obtain post-indictment success for our clients and to minimize the effect of an indictment or other government scrutiny. Representative industries include healthcare, technology, securities, import/export violations, aviation management, and allegations of criminal fraud in the business and bankruptcy contexts.

Healthcare Investigations & Enforcement Proceedings

We have particular experience in the health care field, where we represent providers facing criminal investigations and state and federal regulatory enforcement. Our clients include doctors, clinic owners, and other employees at the executive and management levels. In addition to general allegations of criminal fraud, including Medicare fraud, we have experience handling government allegations of improper business practices in the managed-care, management services organization context.

Employee Representation

During government investigations of corporations, small businesses, and their employees, we represent executives, management personnel, and other current and former employees. We handle large document reviews and production, data analysis, and preparation for government interviews. We are experienced in individual and concurrent employee representation.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Government agencies are prioritizing detection, investigation, and prosecution of suspected COVID-19-related crimes. Applications related to the CARES Act, the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program, and other federal relief packages and loans may be implicated, in addition to COVID-19-related healthcare fraud. These investigations and prosecutions may involve allegations of Medicare fraud, securities fraud, insurance fraud, investment fraud, workers’ compensation fraud, price fixing, bid rigging, price gouging, medical marketing fraud, fraudulent billing, kickbacks, counterfeit or mislabeled medical products, and bankruptcy fraud. The combination of our experience handling government allegations of healthcare fraud and excellence handling business litigation provides our individual and corporate clients with a full-service team, dedicated to minimizing criminal and civil exposure.

We are well positioned to conduct internal corporate investigations to uncover COVID-19-related fraud or other illicit practices before any government scrutiny.
