Government Enforcement and Litigation

At Haynes 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 long-time 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.
