Government Compliance, Investigations & Litigation

Under pressure.

Husch Blackwell helps clients assess and mitigate risk in an effort to avert the disruption and expense that accompany high-stakes government investigations and litigation. In an effort to detect and prevent misconduct before it leads to government intervention, our team develops comprehensive compliance programs and conducts cost-efficient internal investigations. If litigation ensues, our team negotiates settlements for criminal and civil charges and defends individuals and corporations at trial.

Our team’s deep background in criminal law and procedure affords our attorneys a unique understanding of governmental and prosecutorial perspectives. By better understanding the true focus of an investigation, we can help clients protect their reputation and their business.

Our guidance to clients on government compliance, investigations and litigation includes:

Compliance strategies

To help clients get out in front of compliance obligations, our attorneys develop tailored, industry-specific compliance programs and provide training to client employees. We conduct audits and internal investigations, represent clients in enforcement proceedings and determine when voluntary disclosures are appropriate.

Corporate crime scene

We offer comprehensive counsel and corporate crime prevention strategies to businesses that are vulnerable to internal financial fraud, unauthorized data intrusions, wrongful employee conduct and conflicts of interest.

Government investigations

Husch Blackwell has significant experience representing clients that are subject to regulatory oversight, as well as defending them in civil and criminal enforcement actions. Our attorneys advise clients in response to investigations of bank and healthcare fraud, theft of trade secrets, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) allegations and more.

White collar criminal defense

Husch Blackwell’s team has successfully defended clients at every stage, from a regulator’s first phone call through government audits, grand jury investigations and criminal trials. Our primary objective is to help clients avoid prosecution. If they do face charges, we work to secure the best possible outcome in any given scenario, either by settlement or by vigorously defending their case.

Testimonial Reachel Beichley, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, MRIGlobal

“Ninety percent of the work that we do is for the U.S. government, and we needed boots on the ground in D.C. to help us out. [Husch Blackwell professionals] in the D.C. office are making the contacts and helping us develop relationships. They have opened so many doors. The outcomes have been tremendous.”
