Government Investigations

Government Investigations and criminal prosecutions require trial lawyers who are unafraid to fight for their clients in conference rooms or courtrooms. This is the cornerstone on which our reputation is built.

The firm regularly represents financial institutions, major corporations, their senior management and other mid-level employees as well as prominent individuals who are embroiled in government investigations or are the target of enforcement proceedings by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the United States Department of Justice, and state regulatory agencies. The issues in these matters range from allegations of insider trading, improper trading practices, misleading or incomplete disclosure, market manipulation, complex accounting questions and misrepresentations and other forms of financial fraud.  

We are frequently called upon to assist in matters under parallel investigations conducted by both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Department of Justice and are known for our experience handling most types of government inquiries, investigations, and enforcement actions. We have also been retained to represent employees, or groups of employees, scheduled to be called as witnesses in connection with Grand Jury investigations.

Morvillo Abramowitz lawyers are recognized for their expertise and combination of skills to lead investigations. In many instances we have successfully kept client matters out of the public record with no public enforcement proceedings.
