White Collar Criminal Defense
Simon & Partners is regularly engaged in all stages of white collar criminal litigation in federal, state, and local prosecutions including advising clients who are targets of grand jury investigations, guiding clients through the indictment and plea bargaining process and representing them at trial and on appeal. The firm also provides legal assistance to corporations and private businesses with respect to internal or government investigations, corporate compliance, and negotiating plea agreements, grants of immunity and cooperation agreements. Simon & Partners further provides counseling and advice to individuals and corporate entities regarding potential criminal liability and preventative measures to avoid liability. In doing so, the firm may conduct comprehensive investigations aimed at preempting indictment and seek innovative solutions to difficult criminal issues. The firm is currently retained to represent clients in some of the most nationally prominent investigations.
Simon & Partners routinely represents individuals and corporations in white collar cases involving allegations of securities fraud, corruption of public officials, bank fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations (FCPA), health care and insurance fraud, antitrust violations, bribery, mail and wire fraud, environmental offenses, accounting fraud, stock manipulation, money laundering and tax evasion. The firm regularly handles proceedings before the Securities and Exchange Commission and the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (NASD).
Simon & Partners is well-equipped to handle any white collar criminal matter as all of its partners are former federal and state prosecutors who have had extensive jury trial and grand jury investigation experience. The firm is frequently retained in complex white collar cases as lead trial counsel. We are also regularly retained at the later stages of an investigation or post-indictment for the purpose of negotiating a successful pre-trial resolution on behalf of our clients.
