Locke Lord has spent decades representing corporations, their officers and employees in white collar criminal matters and internal investigations. With a client base ranging from publicly traded companies and nonprofit groups to members of corporate management teams and leading executives, our attorneys have a broad knowledge in a host of different industries.
We have represented clients in white collar criminal cases and internal investigations in the fields of health care, insurance, securities, finance, manufacturing, bankruptcy, consumer fraud, environmental, government contracts and many others. Our attorneys are experienced in antitrust enforcement, Foreign Corrupt Practice Act, option back-dating, public corruption, export and import criminal violations, bank fraud, commercial bribery, money laundering, forfeitures, computer fraud and virtually any business or economic criminal allegation.
From defending major insurance and reinsurance companies against allegations of accounting irregularities to representing corporations that market and sell pharmaceuticals, Locke Lord's experience is comprehensive. We help clients with grand jury investigations, public relations and strategic planning all the way through to aggressive courtroom defense if necessary.
Our lawyers have won acquittals in many federal and state white collar cases and represented a number of energy executives and traders, including several individuals targeted in the Enron investigation. We strive to investigate and thoroughly understand the nuances of each case, working to resolve matters before criminal charges are ever filed. Attorneys in our white collar and internal investigations team work closely with Locke Lord lawyers in other specialties to ensure a multidisciplinary approach to these traditionally controversial and sometimes high profile cases.
We have decades of experience conducting internal investigations on behalf of audit or special committees of public and private companies. Our attorneys have helped clients devise policies and procedures to protect them in the future. We know internal investigations involve sensitive matters, and we work discreetly and quickly to find out the facts and report them to our clients.
When our clients are the subjects of internal investigations, we help them properly and efficiently respond to the investigation's findings. Our experience with internal investigations covers a broad range of topics, including financial accounting, federal securities laws and regulations, transactions with related parties, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations, regulatory compliance and shareholder derivative demands.
