Sophisticated Defense For Fraud And Financial Crimes
Federal and state law enforcement agencies have increasingly set their sights on white collar crimes. If you or your business has attracted the scrutiny of fraud investigators, you may be facing serious felony charges, not to mention the possibility of civil fraud prosecution, IRS audits, asset forfeiture and sanctions against professional licenses.
The business and tax law attorneys of Goldburd McCone LLP provide a robust and comprehensive defense to individuals and corporate entities under investigation for tax fraud, embezzlement and other white collar offenses. With offices in New York, New Jersey, Florida and California, our team handles cases nationwide.
Proven Representation For High-Stakes White Collar Crimes
It is critical to seek legal counsel immediately if you have been contacted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of Justice, the FBI or another agency. By the time investigators approach you, they have already amassed other evidence of allegedly illegal activity. Prosecutors commonly stack multiple charges – including wire fraud, mail fraud and/or criminal conspiracy – to cover the bases and give them additional leverage.
Our attorneys mount a sophisticated defense for financial crimes, such as:
- Tax fraud or tax evasion
- Corporate embezzlement
- Misappropriation of client funds
- Illegal structuring of financial transactions
- Illicit use of offshore tax havens
- Money laundering
- Forgery of financial documents
- Defrauding the government (False Claims Act)
- Securities fraud
We represent business owners and executives, bookkeepers and office managers, corporate officers and directors, officers of nonprofit organizations, bankers, physicians and hospital administrators, accountants, trustees and other fiduciaries, and anyone accused of white collar financial crimes.
Skilled Defense And Damage Control
The government has the burden to prove criminal intent and that a crime occurred. We use our immense knowledge to counter allegations of wrongdoing in criminal proceedings or negotiate with prosecutors out of court. In some cases, our intervention can avert an arrest or indictment.
We realize the stakes are high. We make every effort to reduce the charges or mitigate the penalties and collateral consequences for our clients. Our team can also explore restitution, probation, resignation, surrendering professional licenses and other alternatives to a prison sentence and criminal record.
Signs of trouble within? The team at Goldburd McCone LLP performs internal investigations for corporate clients who suspect embezzlement or fraud. Our experts can identify discrepancies or red flags in the books, gauge the company’s potential exposure to criminal and civil actions and advise on disclosures and cooperation with law enforcement.
