White collar crime comprises a wide array of criminal acts that are committed by individuals and corporate entities in a business or professional setting for financial gain. White collar crime includes such criminal charges as:
Those accused of white collar crimes face not only the pressures of criminal prosecution, but also the unpleasant prospects of negative publicity and reputational harm, as well as catastrophic financial loss. Potential penalties for white collar crimes range from probation, fines and criminal forfeiture, to lengthy prison sentences. The consequences of a criminal conviction for a corporate entity can effectively destroy its ability to continue as a viable business concern.
Kaiser Law Firm, PLLC is well-equipped to assist clients in all stages of white collar criminal litigation, including responding to subpoenas and advising clients who are witnesses, subjects or targets in grand jury investigations. While very experienced in the courtroom, we understand the importance and value in developing strategic options aimed at favorably resolving criminal proceedings without a formal criminal charge if at all possible. We also offer an experienced hand in guiding clients through the indictment and plea bargaining process and, when needed, representing them at trial, on appeal and in any related civil and administrative proceedings.
Kaiser Law Firm, PLLC also is well-qualified to counsel corporate entities regarding potential criminal liability, to perform internal investigations in response to allegations of criminal misconduct, to evalute a prospective decision to self-disclose misconduct to regulators and to help frame and present arguments to government authorities aimed at demonstrating why a fair consideration of factors guiding prosecutorial discretion militates against bringing criminal charges against the company. We can also help monitor corporate compliance with the terms of agreements resolving criminal liability, as well as design and help implement preventive measures that can be adopted by companies to avoid or mitigate liability. Such measures include effective compliance programs, which can influence a prosecutorial decision not to file charges and result in reduced penalties and sentences. More on these aspects of the firm’s practice is discussed under “Health Care Fraud” and “Monitoring and Investigations.”
