White Collar Defense Practice Group


Anderson Kill provides effective representation to entities, institutions, and individuals who are subject to governmental agency proceedings.  Government regulators ever increasingly commence civil and administrative proceedings, government investigations, enforcement proceedings, and criminal prosecutions throughout the United States.  Our firm was founded by former government attorneys and continues to boast a significant number of attorneys with a broad range of experience dealing with government agencies.  Our team of attorneys includes former prosecutors, agency attorneys, regulators and judges as well as defense attorneys.

When a client receives an inquiry or subpoena from a government agency or prosecutor, we work quickly with the client to develop a sound response.  Often we are able to head off formal proceedings by conducting an internal investigation, structuring our client’s defenses, negotiating with government attorneys, and designing and implementing corporate compliance programs.

When necessary, we are also fully prepared to litigate against the government on our clients’ behalf.  Anderson Kill attorneys have extensive experience successfully resolving a broad range of matters stretching all the way from antitrust to organized crime.  We have represented individuals and businesses in administrative, civil and enforcement proceeding, instituted by (among other agencies,) the United States DOJ, various state Attorneys General, the SEC, IRS, CFTC, EPA, OCC, FINRA and state agencies, such as environmental regulators. We have represented people and businesses whether they were subjects, targets, witnesses, or defendants up to and including in grand jury investigations, criminal trials and appeals.
