Increased regulation by governmental and regulatory entities has placed many individuals and businesses at risk of being charged with “Business Crimes” or  “White Collar Crimes”.  These crimes include money laundering, bank fraud, mail fraud, health care fraud, bribery, embezzlement, forgery, insider trading, antitrust violations and racketeering. The punishment for violating business crimes can be extremely harsh, both in terms of imprisonment and financial forfeitures.  Many times, those charged with business crimes are hardworking business executives whose only mistake is having failed to comply with complicated governmental regulations or are businesses at the mercy of a disgruntled whistleblowing employee whose agenda is financial gain at the expense of the business.  The defense of those charged with such crimes is complicated and should always be handled by attorneys experienced in the defense of business related crimes.
