Our White Collar Criminal Defense and Internal Investigations Group represents clients around the U.S. and routinely draws on the talents of our Corporate, Tax, Environmental, Litigation, International Trade & Customs, Government Contracts, as well as our Employment, Immigration, and Health Care and Life Sciences practice groups for experience in responding to matters in these groups' areas of focus. We represent clients in criminal and civil government investigations at every stage of the process—from grand jury subpoenas or civil investigative demands through trials and appeals.
Epstein Becker Green's multi-disciplinary approach provides our White Collar Criminal Defense teams with the type of strategic vision during the initial investigative phases of a matter that seeks to avoid our clients being charged with civil or criminal violations. We work hard in the early stages of an investigation to avoid an unfavorable charging decision. Our attorneys are extremely credible in the investigative stage because government adversaries recognize our ability to obtain advantageous results for clients at trial.
EBG's litigators include former assistant U.S. Attorneys, state prosecutors, and criminal defense attorneys who have successfully represented clients in a plethora of cases ranging from financial crimes -- such as False Claims Act, health care fraud, financial institution fraud, insider trading, tax and securities fraud -- to public corruption and crimes under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

They include the former head of the Department of Justice's Civil Division, who later served as acting Attorney General of the U.S.; outside counsel to the World Bank for internal investigation of fraud and abuse of its programs; the former chief of the Criminal Health Care Unit in the Southern District of New York; the former counsel for the Treasury Department's Advisory Committee on Commercial Operations of the Customs Service (COAC); and a former Watergate prosecutor.
