When faced with a criminal or regulatory-related legal issue or crisis, a company or an individual requires prompt, tested and reliable legal counsel.
The Sills Cummis White Collar Criminal Defense team of attorneys draws on its extensive investigative and trial experience and collective understanding of law enforcement strategies to effectively and efficiently address clients’ needs and vigorously protect their reputations, while responding to criminal, civil, or regulatory investigations or proceedings.
Collectively, the attorneys in the Criminal Defense Practice Group possess the proficiency and capabilities to respond skillfully to governmental inquiries, while seeking an outcome tailored to each client’s business, operational, and reputational interests and goals.
Our criminal defense team consists of federal prosecutors, with varied experiences at the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the District of New Jersey, the Southern District of New York, the Southern District of Florida, and at the Department of Justice. The team also includes a former New Jersey Attorney General, a former Executive Assistant Attorney General, who served as the Chief of Law Enforcement Services for the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, and a former IRS trial attorney. The team represents clients in a wide array of matters, including health care fraud, internal investigations, political corruption, regulatory compliance, securities fraud, and tax fraud, among others.
While the greatest result is when an investigation ends before charges are brought and before anything becomes public, our lawyers’ combination of experiences affords our clients aggressive representation at all stages, including at any trial or hearing, if necessary.
