Corporations, boards of directors, management and individuals are subject to increasingly intense scrutiny and aggressive government enforcement. The cooperation and coordination between civil regulatory agencies and law enforcement is greater than ever. No longer can you assume that any inquiry is “just civil” or “purely regulatory.” Instead, companies and individuals need to guard against seemingly minor regulatory actions blossoming into criminal investigations.
Husch Blackwell’s deep, experienced and geographically diverse White Collar Criminal Defense team has successfully defended companies and individuals at every stage -- from a regulator’s first phone call, through government audits, grand jury investigations and criminal trials.
