Contact(s)

Cadwalader's white collar defense and investigations lawyers have "an excellent reputation for advising blue-chip corporates," exhibit "professional competence, hard work and creativity" and "focus on solving problems." - The Legal 500

Cadwalader’s White Collar Defense and Investigations partners are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in the field, and include former federal prosecutors, a former United States Attorney, a former Chief of Staff of the Drug Enforcement Administration, and a former senior enforcement attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  They are supported by a talented group of counsel and associates, several of whom clerked for distinguished federal judges and have served in various positions with the Department of Justice and the Department of Defense.

The group represents financial institutions, investment firms, broker-dealers, corporations, boards of directors, audit committees, non-governmental organizations, and individuals in criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings, trials, and appeals, as well as before Congress.  Its attorneys have extensive expertise conducting internal investigations, managing risk assessments of U.S. and foreign entities and markets, and advising clients on developing, implementing, and training on corporate compliance programs.  Cadwalader partners have also served as monitors as part of Department of Justice settlements.

Cadwalader’s White Collar Defense and Investigations group has extensive expertise advising clients on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010, the Bank Secrecy Act, the False Claims Act, the Commodity Exchange Act, money laundering and asset forfeiture laws, the securities and commodities statutes, economic sanctions, criminal tax violations, health care fraud and abuse, controlled substances regulations, government procurement fraud, and cybersecurity and data protection laws.  Attorneys in the group are also experienced in defending cases (including class actions) involving the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the federal mail and wire fraud statutes.

The group regularly represents clients before the Department of Justice, United States Attorneys’ Offices, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Federal Reserve, the Department of the Treasury and its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the various Inspectors General, the Department of Defense and its various agencies, the World Bank, and U.S. Congressional Committees.
