White Collar Criminal Defense

For over 40 years, Chambliss lawyers have been working on sophisticated white collar criminal defense cases for international and national corporations, small to mid-size businesses, and individuals. Our team includes lawyers who have served as lead counsel in hundreds of jury and bench trials, arguing appeals in both federal and state courts. Furthermore, we have the unique perspective of a former presidentially appointed United States Attorney who has counseled on substantial financial and health care fraud mediations and negotiations resulting in multi-million dollar settlements, national security fraud investigations, and corporate settlements. With an interdisciplinary approach and hands-on civil, criminal, and regulatory experience, we work to find solutions while minimizing business interruptions to assist our clients in overcoming these challenges.
 
The phrase white collar crime, initially coined in 1939 during a presentation to the American Sociological Society, has changed a lot since its development. Corporations and their officers, directors, and employees face increased government oversight. It is important to understand these laws and regulations when developing compliance programs, and when responding to investigations, or alleged violations.

Chambliss’ services include:

  • Corporate compliance programs
  • Internal investigations
  • Governmental criminal and administrative investigations
  • Criminal litigation and defense
  • Representation before the grand juries
  • Parallel proceedings, including administrative enforcement proceedings and forfeiture of assets
