White Collar Crime & Consumer Rights

Small businesses and multinational companies face growing legal challenges by various national and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies and consumer class action lawsuit filings.  Enforcement and litigation is intensifying. Crimes ranging from bribery and money laundering to sanctions and securities violations, Medicare fraud, workplace violations, tax fraud, and the fallout from computer crime and widespread data breaches are all drawing more media attention and litigation and regulatory activity. Additionally, many countries aggressively seek to regulate conduct beyond their borders, and cooperation and information-sharing by law enforcement and regulatory authorities around the world are growing.
