Building A Strong Defense In White Collar Criminal Investigations
White collar crime is distinguished by the fraudulent manipulation of information, rather than by physical actions or force. While we commonly think of these criminal offenses as affecting business executives and managers, employees or owners of small businesses can face them as well if they engage in embezzlement, theft or other fraudulent acts.
Individuals who fall under investigation by government agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will likely be informed of the investigation in the following ways:
Contact from a federal or state agency representative
Receipt of a subpoena that requests they gather and provide business records
Search and seizure of business documents that is backed up by a search warrant
Receipt of a target letter that informs the individuals of their rights and the criminal activity for which they are being investigated
At Millbranth & Bush, we understand that complying with regulations can be complicated, and failure to comply can lead to serious criminal offenses such as these. We develop sophisticated defense strategies as we work one-on-one with our clients, such as duress, an absence of intent to harm or entrapment. Make sure to have an experienced lawyer on your side before you make any statements about the potential charges against you.
