COVID-19: Emergency Order Violations & Related White Collar Crimes

As businesses and entrepreneurs continue to deal with emergency orders relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a heightened risk of government investigation or white collar prosecution for certain businesses, and it will be critical for these businesses or executives to obtain expert guidance on how to avoid or defend against such investigations or prosecutions, including relating to violations of emergency orders, fraud relating to CARES Act loans and other financial crimes, healthcare fraud, securities fraud and insider trading, public corruption, price gouging, import/export violations, tax fraud, and unfair or deceptive business practices. Many businesses will need to evaluate their strategic options and our Government Investigations & White Collar Defense group is equipped to deal with the myriad investigations and prosecutions that are common in these crisis or emergency circumstances.
