White Collar Defense

Our White Collar Group is recognized for its significant experience in all aspects of corporate criminal defense and enforcement-related litigation, including trials, internal investigations, representing clients in grand jury investigations, and managing parallel criminal and civil proceedings.  Wyatt’s White Collar Group had also advised clients on voluntary disclosure and compliance issues, including issues under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Our lawyers have aggressively defended corporations and their executives, public officials and other individuals in cases involving allegations of securities fraud, bribery, perjury and false statements, tax fraud, antitrust violations, healthcare fraud, false claims, FDA violations, immigration fraud, FCPA violations and environmental crimes.

Our corporate criminal defense lawyers provide critical advice at every stage of an investigation or case. Some of our greatest successes have never become public because victory was achieved by convincing prosecutors not to pursue charges against our clients. Other cases have involved some of the most publicized cases in each of our market areas.

We have also pursued and litigated civil fraud claims on behalf of private and publicly-traded corporations, creditors and government regulators against former employees, agents, independent contractors, legal and financial professionals and others to recover ill-gotten gains and stolen assets.  Many of these actions result in referral to state and federal prosecutors.

Our lawyers in Wyatt’s White Collar Group include former Assistant State Attorneys General, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, and a former Trial Attorney with the Public Integrity Section of U.S. Department of Justice.
