White Collar Criminal Defense


Post Polak’s White Collar Criminal practice group provides skilled and experienced representation in matters relating to investigations, criminal prosecutions and civil enforcement in federal and state courts. Our clients include public and private corporations as well as individuals. We address matters relating to federal and state grand jury subpoenas, electronic surveillance, computer crime, RICO violations, federal and state tax evasion, environmental crimes, fraud, public and private corruption, securities violations and OSHA and workplace safety violations. On the civil side, we guide clients through civil penalty and contract debarment issues that often arise after the conclusion of a criminal investigation.

Our attorneys provide counseling and assistance to decision-makers whose judgments may have potential criminal law implications. We advise on and conduct internal corporate investigations of possible criminal or unethical activities, and we assist in communications to federal and state criminal and regulatory officials regarding those investigations. Our attorneys can help those who became involved as victims of criminal activities at the hands of their employees or others.

Our lawyers advise and represent entities and individuals who believe they may be the target or subject of an investigation, and we have had success in persuading federal and state authorities not to pursue civil or criminal sanctions against our clients. However, if an investigation leads to an indictment, we are prepared to mount a vigorous defense against the charges.
