White Collar Defense

Standing by our clients.

Husch Blackwell defends companies and individuals at every stage of investigation -- from a regulator’s first phone call through government audits, grand jury investigations and criminal trials. Our team has extensive experience with regulatory compliance requirements and investigations, and we draw on that knowledge to help clients prevent or detect misconduct before it leads to government intervention. When prosecution does occur, we work to secure the best possible outcome, either through settlement or vigorous trial defense. 

Several attorneys on our team are seasoned trial lawyers with experience in white collar defense; others are former federal and state prosecutors  or federal agents. We understand from firsthand experience how law enforcement works and thinks, and we use that insight for the benefits of clients.
