Our White Collar Criminal Defense group is frequently retained by corporate and individual clients who have been identified as witnesses in, or subjects or targets of, ongoing investigations. We have had great success in minimizing our clients’ exposure, frequently helping them avoid regulatory sanctions and criminal prosecution. We are also experienced trial lawyers and have an excellent track record in criminal trials and appeals.
Our Paris team has extensive trial experience before a wide variety of French courts, and notably the French financial prosecutor (PNF – Parquet national financier) regarding white collar criminal cases.
