White Collar Crimes
Miedel & Mysliwiec LLP regularly represents individuals and corporations in white collar criminal matters in the investigation, arrest, prosecution and appellate phases of a case. In the investigation stage, we are often successful in persuading authorities not to arrest or charge our clients.
Our attorneys assertively defend clients in federal and state white collar criminal cases, including:
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud and evasion
- Financial fraud
- Money laundering
- Business Fraud and Public Corruption
In cases where such charges cannot be avoided or where a client does not consult with us until after being arrested, we have succeeded in getting charges dismissed or resolving cases favorably through negotiation, litigation or trial.
Recent cases have included allegations such as securities fraud, insider trading, tax fraud, money laundering, health care fraud, bank fraud, internet and computer crimes, Food and Drug Administration misbranding offenses, and other similar charges. Our involvement in white collar criminal matters often includes concurrent representation in regulatory proceedings and internal investigations or assistance with collateral issues such as employment or professional licensing.
