White Collar Defense and Investigations

Government Investigations and White Collar Defense

Spencer Fane effectively manages crisis situations at the moment executives and companies are threatened with a high-profile investigation or indictment. We help clients identify issues and risks and make strategic decisions that can minimize or avoid serious penalties, or even incarceration.

Our attorneys counsel clients how to avoid serious legal problems and we aggressively defend them if trouble can’t be avoided. We provide representation through all aspects of investigations and trials when corporate leadership, high-level managers, and rank and file employees face potentially devastating legal issues. We have the depth to handle serious criminal and regulatory investigations while providing effective and cost-efficient service.

Our team includes former federal and state prosecutors, and we understand the tactics, strategy, and mindset used by prosecutors and plaintiffs’ attorneys.

When clients are faced with an investigation, our attorneys work to keep them out of the courtroom when that best aligns with their business interests, but if necessary, we employ our trial skills and fight hard to achieve meaningful outcomes. We have a track record of successfully representing companies and individuals at every stage of the enforcement process in state and federal courts.

Our experience spans public integrity, trade secrets, opioid enforcement, post-investigation compliance, and more.

Our White Collar Defense and Investigations areas of focus include:
