White Collar Criminal Defense

The phrase white collar crime was initially coined in 1939 during a presentation to the American Sociological Society. However, a lot has changed 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.
