We advise and defend clients facing civil and criminal investigations and enforcement proceedings by federal agencies, including DOJ, EEOC, SEC, CFTC, FINRA, and FERC, and related state and local regulators and self-regulatory organizations.
Our experience with enforcement actions equips us to investigate and resolve suspected compliance issues before they invite outside scrutiny. We also assist management and board members with internal investigations of discrimination, harassment, whistleblower, fraud, corruption, self-dealing, and other alleged violations of company policies.

Represent clients in matters involving allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, financial fraud, market manipulation, disruptive trading practices, and other financial and trading issues.
