White Collar & Criminal Investigations
Burch Porter represents individuals and businesses in all phases of white collar criminal litigation, from pre-indictment investigations through trial and appellate proceedings in federal courts. We recognize that the best result for our client may be the one no one ever hears about—persuading the Government not to pursue an action against our client. The firm has extensive experience working with general counsel’s offices and with representatives of boards of directors to achieve effective results in the most sensitive of matters.
The firm’s members have spearheaded large document-intensive internal investigations for businesses of all sizes and types, from large multinational corporations to small family-owned companies. The firm has recently handled complex matters in the areas of healthcare fraud, tax evasion, mail and wire fraud, criminal antitrust, bank fraud and other financial crimes. Our experience in this area has also caused us to address related civil ramifications of criminal proceedings, such as shareholder suits, qui tam litigation, and governmental debarment actions.
