Vigorously Defending You in the Most Trying of Times

​Law enforcement and government regulatory agencies are casting a wider net and aggressively pursuing individuals and companies to detect wrongdoing. Being the target of an investigation can cost more than your reputation. We have a long and successful track record of representing individuals and businesses in some of the most highly publicized white collar criminal cases in the country — including Ruth Madoff in a variety of regulatory and investigative forums and lawsuits.

Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz helped a publicly traded company that does substantial business with the federal government respond to a grand jury subpoena and civil investigative demand following a whistleblower’s allegations of fraud. The government ultimately declined to bring criminal charges or a civil suit.
Case Study
Mintz represented fantasy sports figures in the DraftKings / FanDuel federal and multistate regulatory controversy concerning the legality of fantasy sports and alleged misuse of insider information and unfair or deceptive practices. No charges were brought against the Mintz clients.
Case Study
Mintz represented a professional services provider who was charged with wire fraud and money laundering. At the close of the government’s evidence and after Mintz cross-examined the government’s witnesses, the judge dismissed the case without sending it to the jury.

Our Approach

Our white collar defense attorneys represent both individuals and businesses in a wide range of state, federal, and administrative criminal matters. Early on, we develop aggressive and creative strategies to resolve crises both inside the courtroom and in the public relations sphere.

By vigorously defending against allegations from the outset, we often succeed in convincing prosecutors not to proceed criminally against clients or to resolve matters short of indictment. However, when no negotiation is possible, we have a reputation for taking tough cases to trial and winning.
