White Collar, Government Investigations & Regulatory Defense

There are immensely high stakes when liberty interests and commercial viability can be called into jeopardy. With globalization and evolving enforcement efforts, we believe clients need a trusted advisor to guide them through the complex issues they face in today’s regulatory environment.

At Bohrer PLLC, our white collar defense strategies are devised based on legal rigor, commercial acumen and holistic thinking. Our team has dealt with high-profile government investigations and enforcement actions from all perspectives, having held roles in-house, in the business world and in the government as a federal prosecutor.

Our lawyers understand the fragility and importance of a good reputation, a brand – and the avalanche of damage that one ill-advised decision by a business or action by the government can exact. To the extent possible, we negotiate resolutions before they cascade into larger problems. In the event the government proceeds with prosecution, we quarterback specialized teams to succeed in the courtroom and defend our client’s interests.

Our team differentiates itself from larger firms with its adaptability and tenacity, not afraid to challenge the status quo—when necessary. Our curated global network of sophisticated experts, which we have fostered over decades, enables us to strategically assemble integrated, multidisciplinary teams as needed. This includes investigative, academic, industry, forensic accounting, public relations and other professionals that complement our legal defenses.
We also have unique experience representing lawyers—Chief Legal Officers, General Counsels, and other in-house lawyers—in the face of white collar defense matters. Having managed government investigations and enforcement actions from the in-house perspective, we have a deep understanding of the important issues surrounding attorney-client privilege and the outsourcing of internal investigations that are critical in adverse proceedings against lawyers.

We represent business, executives and in-house lawyers in a wide-range of white collar matters, including:

  • Accounting Fraud 
  • Anti-Money Laundering
  • Bribery and Corruption
  • Embezzlement
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
