Corporate investigations are sensitive by nature. Many, including those in which our efforts have ended in a significant result, will never become public knowledge. Even those that have come to public attention remain sensitive issues for our clients. Accordingly, in this area we do not disclose client names. The scope of our experience in these investigations relates to almost every significant area of White Collar Crime, including securities fraud, healthcare fraud, RICO, public corruption and environmental crimes and Sarbanes Oxley compliance issues.
