At Haynes and Boone, our national Government Enforcement and Litigation Practice Group knows that when companies – or their executives and directors – face significant potential criminal or civil liability, they need lawyers who understand how prosecutors and regulators think.
Our team includes former high-ranking federal prosecutors and longtime enforcement defense lawyers experienced at resolving the most sensitive matters through thorough investigation and skillful negotiation.
When issues arise at a company, we understand the benefit of timely resolution. Our team quickly delivers the knowledge and resources needed to undertake complex and time-pressured internal investigations that often accompany corresponding governmental investigation or civil claims. Providing a coordinated and consistent defense in the face of such parallel proceedings has been the hallmark of our practice for decades.
Our experience includes defending companies and individuals in cases involving:
- Antitrust violations
- Environmental compliance and reporting violations
- False Claims Act and Qui Tam/whistleblower proceedings
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations
- Government contracting and procurement fraud
- Healthcare fraud and abuse
- International trade and customs fraud
- Mail and wire fraud
- Money laundering violations
- RICO violations
- Securities law violations
In light of ever-increasing regulation, we also routinely counsel clients on establishing corporate compliance programs. Our lawyers are skilled in developing tailored compliance programs to meet the demands of a client’s industry or particular needs, whether to minimize risk of misconduct or in response to previous problems.
