White Collar Crime & Investigations

The Criminal Law/Civil Rights Team at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A. has one of the most well-established state and federal practices in New Jersey.  Our team includes former assistant county prosecutors and deputy attorneys general who have distinguished themselves in difficult and highly publicized cases.

In the past, "white collar" offenses received little attention, and law enforcement authorities and prosecutorial agencies did not devote their resources to investigate such matters or prosecute those believed to be responsible.  Clearly, in recent years, all of that has changed, and professionals and those in the business world face the prospect of substantial punishment, monetary and otherwise, for committing white collar offenses.

Our team focuses on criminal laws and also on the related, and often complex, civil and regulatory implications arising from allegations of criminal conduct.  Representation is available for:

  • Cybersecurity and Data Breach Investigations 
  • Healthcare Investigations
  • Securities Fraud Matters
  • Criminal Tax Matters
  • Subpoena Compliance and Grand Jury Investigations
  • Public Corruption Investigations and Defense
  • Racketeering and Enterprise Corruption Cases
  • Internal and Corporate Investigations
  • Trade Secret

We have the ability to represent individuals and companies in complex criminal investigations and to assist in setting up systems, procedures and policies to prevent future situations that may create criminal liability for an individual or company.
