Business/Financial Crimes

These types of offenses include embezzlement from a business entity or other types of crimes in which the business is either the victim of the crime or the perpetrator of the crime. In the latter situations the law enforcement authorities seek to identify the business professionals responsible for the criminal behavior.

The ramifications can be devastating for a business or financial institution that is under investigation. Publicly traded companies may have to report the investigation in their periodic filings, thus, decimating the share prices. Banks may call the loans of businesses under investigation resulting in a corporate failure. Lastly, negative public perception may significantly harm a company. Therefore, it is essential that businesses and their executives obtain experienced white collar criminal counsel as soon as possible to navigate both investigative and collateral issues.
