White Collar Criminal Defense


Government investigations into business activities — particularly in securities, tax, and health care matters — pose potentially significant civil and criminal liability risks to businesses and individuals. The attorneys in the White Collar Criminal Defense group at Conner & Winters have experience and knowledge in providing practical, effective representation of clients confronted with potential economic crimes.

Our attorneys conduct internal investigations of potential criminal wrongdoing by corporate employees. We draw upon our knowledge of the prosecutorial process to provide practical advice on identifying potential liability for economic misconduct.

The White Collar Criminal Defense group regularly advises clients in responding to grand jury or administrative subpoenas, handling grand jury proceedings and search warrants, negotiating with prosecutors and other governmental regulators, and defending clients in criminal pleas, trials, and sentencing. With our reputation for excellence and straightforward talk, we provide uncompromising assistance to clients in dealing with governmental representatives.

The White Collar Criminal Defense group advises clients in a wide range of potential economic crimes including among others:

  • Embezzlement
  • Environmental crimes
  • False statements
  • False claims
  • Health care fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Insurance fraud
  • Kickbacks
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Money laundering
  • RICO violations
  • Securities fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Tax evasion

Our team has been in the trenches. One of the firm’s attorneys served as an Assistant United States Attorney and has a comprehensive understanding of the workings of the criminal prosecution division. Another Conner & Winters attorney represented clients in both the Whitewater and Espy Independent Counsel investigations.  Yet another spent many years clerking for a federal judge who presided over many criminal trials.  With the added ability to call upon our Conner & Winters colleagues whose legal practices focus on securities, environmental, tax, Indian gaming, and other substantive areas, our White Collar Criminal Defense group has the ability to fashion outstanding outcomes for our clients.
