White Collar Investigations & Related Litigation

When it comes to discrete and effective resolution of high-stakes white collar cases and investigations, leading public and private corporations, boards of directors and individuals have relied on the skillful representation of Kaye Scholer’s white collar defense litigators for decades. Our team handles a broad range of matters and also authors the PLI Deskbook on Internal Investigations, Corporate Compliance and White Collar Issues, the nation’s leading single volume treatise on white collar representation.

Our proactive team, which includes several former state and federal prosecutors and SEC lawyers, knows the motives and mechanics of the seemingly ever-multiplying authorities and regulators, and effectively collaborates with clients to manage risk, resolve disputes and position our clients to get on with their business successfully.
