Herrick defends institutions and individuals in white collar criminal and regulatory enforcement actions. Our team includes former federal and state prosecutors, state public defenders and SEC and NASD trial and enforcement attorneys, so we know what it takes to defend both criminal cases and regulatory enforcement actions. We also represent audit committees and boards of directors of public and private companies in independent internal criminal and regulatory investigations. We can counsel you to ensure compliance with laws and regulations that govern the operation of businesses.
Today, federal and state law enforcement efforts focus directly on businesses, and grand jury and regulatory investigations into companies are common. Subjects and witnesses in grand jury and regulatory investigations need counsel with experience in the range of issues that may arise, and you can rely on Herrick for the experience, judgment and legal acumen critical to your success.
If trial is necessary, we are skilled and tenacious advocates. We are trial defense counsel in complex white collar and regulatory cases, and are accomplished appellate attorneys.
As a preventive measure to avoid misconduct, Herrick can help you structure internal compliance programs that deter and detect misconduct by employees, customers and third parties. You’ll benefit from our experience working with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the USA Patriot Act, the Bank Secrecy Act and the Securities Exchange Act, as well as many other federal and state statutes. We help prepare programs that minimize potential liability.
