Masterful defense of high-stakes investigations and enforcement actions

Proskauer’s White Collar Defense & Investigations Group is comprised of litigators with an extraordinary depth of trial experience, having collectively tried more than 300 cases to verdict as defense counsel and as government lawyers. Our cases involve the government’s highest-profile civil, criminal and regulatory investigations, often with an international element.

In addition to being advisors to large organizations, our defense also extends to individual executives. The level of trust these clients place in us is a real testament to our reputation for achieving successful outcomes in tough circumstances. 

We are also adept at helping our clients head off problems before they arise by conducting internal investigations and taking remedial action. When government action is unavoidable, we often work quietly and behind the scenes to negotiate immunity and non-prosecution agreements, and to engineer global dispositions that simultaneously resolve parallel federal and state criminal, civil and administrative actions, both in the U.S. and overseas.

We bring a mind for complexity, substantive knowledge, sound judgment and keen responsiveness to everything we do.
