Defending white collar crime in Maryland
Usually considered non-violent crimes of financial opportunity, charges of white collar crime are serious matters. If you face accusations of a white collar crime at the state level or under federal criminal law in Maryland, you need to retain an attorney at the earliest opportunity.
The current economic environment has provoked intense governmental scrutiny of business entities potentially engaged in fraud or financial misconduct. Against that expanding prosecutorial background, corporate personnel are increasingly finding themselves targeted by grand jury, regulatory, and white collar crime investigations launched by the following agencies:
- United States Treasury
- Federal Bureau of Investigation
- United States Postal Service
- Securities and Exchange Commission
- Internal Revenue Service
- Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration
Because criminal investigation of company officers and personnel in Maryland includes analysis of high-level decisions and overall business culture, an effective defense must be comprehensive. Our white collar crime lawyers counsel and defend your company personnel and corporate behavior, and work to mitigate potential economic damage to your business.
