A good outcome in a criminal, administrative or regulatory investigation can hinge upon the judgment and character of your attorney. Good defense lawyers win trials; great ones – through the force of their credibility and integrity – can often keep their clients out of the courtroom entirely.
At Pryor Cashman, we are justifiably proud of our criminal and regulatory defense attorneys. Trained at the finest state and federal prosecutors’ offices in the country, our lawyers represent individual and corporate clients in all manner of criminal, administrative and regulatory matters. While our attorneys excel at handling such sophisticated matters as U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement proceedings and RICO criminal prosecutions, we are up to the challenge when facing grittier ones, successfully defending such charges as sexual misconduct, fraud, larceny and even homicide.
Drawing upon the skill and experience of our Labor and Employment Group, Pryor Cashman’s defense team regularly defends employees and professionals accused of on-the-job misconduct. Such defense includes representing union employees charged by administrative tribunals, doctors under investigation by hospital boards, and professionals facing licensure issues. Coordinating with our Litigation Group, Pryor Cashman has helped countless clients endure SEC probes, manage the nuances of Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank, and comply with new ethics rules and recent court decisions.
Because we are skilled and experienced at defense, we can also offer valuable counseling to clients when responding to subpoenas, facing regulatory issues, or seeking to establish better internal controls. Our clients routinely seek our advice concerning compliance with local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations. And should they be victimized by crime, we are the first ones they call for guidance and support.
