Eckert Seamans’ White Collar Criminal Defense Group represents clients throughout the United States and abroad in investigations by state and federal grand juries and administrative agencies, and in criminal enforcement proceedings, trials and related complex civil litigation matters. The firm also advises clients on internal corporate audits and investigations relating to their business practices.
The firm counsels corporate and individual targets and witnesses where allegations have been made of mail and wire fraud, securities fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud, health care fraud, civil and criminal RICO, money laundering, bribery, perjury, obstruction of justice, government procurement fraud, defective pricing on government contracts, price fixing, the interstate transportation of stolen funds or funds procured by fraud, civil and criminal forfeitures, and various criminal activities relating to the operation of financial institutions.
The firm's principal objective in representing its clients is to resolve allegations at the preinvestigatory or investigatory phase. Attorneys in the White Collar Criminal Defense Group have had substantial experience and success in the informal resolution of investigations, without formal criminal action, through presentations to various prosecutors and investigators that demonstrate that criminal charges are unwarranted.
If criminal charges are brought, Eckert Seamans has extensive litigation and trial experience in both state and federal courts nationwide. Our attorneys have had great success in defending white collar defendants in complex criminal cases. Representation is also provided in any parallel or related civil litigation instituted in connection with such criminal proceedings.

In addition, they work closely with other attorneys in the firm whose experience covers a broad spectrum of legal issues, including areas such as financial institutions, environmental, securities and government contracts law. As a result, all clients benefit from the special capabilities of the White Collar Criminal Defense attorneys as well as the full range of the firm's experience in major litigation and other areas of law.
