An Experienced Representative For A Variety Of Alleged Corporate Crimes
Corporate crime often falls into the following categories of white-collar crime:
- Financial crimes
- Campaign finance
- Obstruction of justice
- Public corruption
- Tax evasion
Each criminal charge holds significant convictions and sentences against people and corporations, and corporate crime investigations and prosecutions typically involve the following activities:
- Falsification of financial information, including false accounting entries, bogus trades designed to inflate profit or hide losses, and fraudulent transactions designed to evade regulatory oversight
- Self-dealing by corporate insiders, including insider trading, kickbacks, misuse of corporate property for personal gain, and individual tax violations related to self-dealing
- Fraud related to an otherwise legitimately operated mutual or hedge fund, including late trading, certain market timing schemes, falsification of net asset values, and other fraudulent or abusive trading practices by, within or involving a mutual or hedge fund. Hedge funds can commit fraud through many methods, such as mail, wire, phone and the internet.
- Obstruction of justice designed to hide criminal conduct, particularly when the obstruction impedes the inquiries of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), other regulatory agencies and law enforcement agencies
