White Collar, Criminal Defense and Corporate Investigations
Pullman & Comley’s White Collar, Criminal Defense and Corporate Investigations attorneys have a strong track record of representing individuals and corporations at both the state and federal levels in all aspects of corporate governance, compliance and market issues. We regularly represent clients in class actions, shareholder derivative claims and civil enforcement actions, and defend those who have been accused of all types of criminal conduct including securities fraud, price fixing, corruption, theft, tax abuse, environmental contamination and health care fraud, including Medicare and Medicaid fraud.
We help clients identify weaknesses in oversight and offer guidance on preventative measures and the implementation of best practices for corporate governance and regulatory compliance. If a business is the victim of fraud or theft, we are available to conduct witness, document and computer forensics-driven investigations and provide counsel on its civil or criminal remedies.
When an investigation is already underway, we offer counsel and assistance on such issues as the proper response to subpoenas, the execution of search and seizure warrants and preservation of documents and computer evidence. In the event of a prosecution, we aggressively defend individuals and corporations and work towards a swift and reasonable resolution of criminal liability. Our experienced trial attorneys are also prepared to defend criminal and civil claims in court.
Throughout the process, we endeavor to preserve the client’s reputation and good will.
