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 white collar law 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. Our white collar law attorneys understand from firsthand experience how law enforcement works and thinks, and we use that insight for the benefits of clients.

We defend clients in white collar cases involving:

  • Accounting fraud
  • Antitrust
  • Computer and intellectual property crimes
  • Customs and export controls
  • Economic sanctions and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
  • Environmental violations and regulatory compliance
  • False Claims Act/qui tam litigation
  • Financial institution fraud
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
  • Government procurement fraud
  • Healthcare fraud and abuse
  • Immigration
  • Insurance fraud
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Money laundering and Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)
  • Public corruption and Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)
  • Securities fraud and insider trading
  • Tax offenses
