Dr. Nick Oberheiden focuses his litigation practice on white-collar criminal defense, government investigations, SEC & FCPA enforcement, and commercial litigation. He has defended clients in PPP Loan Fraud cases and COVID-19 investigations. Nick also directs internal corporate investigations and he leads defense teams in whistleblower actions, corporate defense cases, as well as cases involving national security and elected officials.
Clients from more than 45 U.S. states have hired Nick to seek effective protection against government investigations, grand jury proceedings, whistleblower cases, federal criminal cases, and regarding questions of corporate compliance. Known for his exceptional analytical skills and effectiveness, Nick routinely avoids criminal charges in federal investigations and, as one of few lawyers, Nick has obtained “Not Guilty” verdicts in federal criminal trials.
When pleading guilty to federal charges is simply not an option, Nick is available to identify promising litigation strategies and to prepare clients meticulously and diligently for trials. Nick has tried cases to verdict, and he has obtained several acquittals in federal white-collar criminal jury trials. Nick set his first federal precedent when he, in the early stage of private practice, convinced a federal judge to break with 70 years of established practice and redefined the subpoena authority of attorneys under Rule 45 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In that case alone, Nick quashed 14 federal subpoenas.
Nick has appeared in litigation proceedings throughout the United States and he has never once lost a motion for summary judgment, a motion on jurisdiction, or a whistleblower case.
Nick has written several widely published books, articles, and blogs and he has taught constitutional law and federal civil procedure on several continents. Nick’s Ph.D. thesis, a critical analysis of constitutional interpretation, was personally enriched by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Breyer, the Chief Justice of Brazil, and others.
