Price gouging, tax fraud, undisclosed offshore (Swiss, Israeli and Asian) bank accounts, health care fraud, insider trading…these are a few of the buzzwords heard on the street and reported daily by the financial press and constantly discussed by the business community. Federal and state regulators are devoting significant new resources to investigations and prosecutions of these business crimes which have become a priority of the IRS, the SEC and other regulatory authorities. For more than thirty years, Sills Cummis & Gross’ senior experienced lawyers have been successfully defending white-collar criminal investigations. The combination of their experience and their backgrounds as former U.S. Attorneys, IRS litigators and trial attorneys with the U.S. Department of Justice, provides the very best defense for our clients.
Sills Cummis & Gross has also established itself as a leader in the relatively new area of tax fraud investigations, focusing on obtaining "tax amnesty" (Voluntary Disclosure) for high net worth individuals who have undisclosed, unreported income derived from undisclosed offshore bank accounts. We have been able to assist hundreds of clients in working their way through the maze of federal and state tax amnesty requirements.
