If you are currently under investigation, it is critical you enlist the help of a criminal defense attorney immediately.

What is White Collar Crime?

White collar crimes are typically financial in nature and involve the alleged criminal misuse of access or information to take advantage of an individual or institution. White collar crimes include:

  • Corporate Fraud: Fraud, defined as deliberate and wrongful deception to accomplish financial or personal gain, comes in many forms. In a corporate setting, it may involve the falsification of financial information, including false accounting and fraudulent trades; self-dealing, including insider trading or misuse of corporate property; and hedge fund violations, including late trading and timing schemes. 
  • Money Laundering: This is the process in which ill-gotten income is disguised as legitimate income. It is commonly associated with complex financial crimes, international or domestic corruption, and various types of fraud. Laundering often occurs through international trade deals, real estate, precious metals transactions, and financial institutions.
  • Embezzlement: This includes the theft of money or property by someone to whom it was entrusted. It includes "skimming off the top" in which small amounts of money are extracted over an extended period of time, the deposit of vendor checks for personal use, accepting bribes, and falsification of expense reports.
  • Securities and Commodities Fraud: This often involves investment fraud, including Ponzi and pyramid schemes, advance fee fraud, prime bank investment, and trading program fraud. It also includes "pump and dump" market manipulation and commodities and promissory note fraud.
