3 What We Do: We conduct internal investigations, structure defenses, and interact with the enforcement community. We defend corporate enterprises and officers, directors, managers and employees, nationwide, in criminal, civil and administrative matters, at the federal, state and local levels. Specifically, we: Conduct internal investigations to assess compliance issues and determine whether questionable conduct has occurred, providing a complete factual, legal and risk analysis. Defend enterprises, corporations and persons who are subjects, targets or witnesses in government investigations, including False Claims Act and qui tam investigations, and related civil or administrative litigation. Track and respond rapidly to all stages of an investigation (ranging from subpoena compliance and grand jury practice to the execution of search warrants or the unsealing of criminal indictments and civil fraud complaints). Avoid or mitigate enforcement action by working with clients to fashion and implement compliance measures which conform to agency guidance and the federal Organizational Sentencing Guidelines. Evaluate the need for and, where appropriate, negotiate voluntary disclosure to relevant government agencies. Negotiate corporate integrity agreements, and monitor corporate compliance moving forward. Defend collateral civil proceedings such as suspensions, debarments or exclusions or civil lawsuits in which fraud is alleged. Defend enterprises, corporations, officers and directors at criminal or civil trial and/or on appeal. Counsel and defend on matters including alleged health care, securities, tax, insurance, mail, wire and financial institution fraud, plus matters concerning regulatory compliance, FCPA, government contracting and reimbursement, immigration, internal theft, public corruption, computer security, and identity theft.
