White Collar Defense and Investigations

Overview

Honigman’s White Collar Defense and Investigations practice group conducts sensitive internal investigations aimed at uncovering or resolving allegations of officer, director, trustee, or employee misconduct. In the course of these internal investigations, our lawyers provide advice and counsel designed to avoid regulatory intervention and mitigate risk. We are also retained by corporate clients to represent employees, or groups of employees, identified in connection with internal, grand jury, or other government investigations.

Honigman defends individual and corporate clients in significant criminal cases. We counsel individuals and corporations in dealings and negotiations with the government prior to filed charges. We defend clients during all phases of a criminal case, including the initial appearance, pretrial proceedings, and possible plea negotiation.  We are exceptional trial attorneys and handle criminal appeals. 

Our lawyers have extensive criminal trial experience that includes bank, mail, wire and securities fraud offenses, healthcare fraud and illegal kickback offenses, tax offenses, controlled substance offenses involving physicians and pharmacies, and other types of government program fraud. We have familiarity with the government agencies that conduct investigations resulting in criminal or other regulatory enforcement actions, including the United States Department of Justice, multiple United States Attorneys’ Offices, the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, and other state agencies.
