White Collar Defense

Government enforcement is becoming increasingly aggressive. Criminal investigations, audits, regulatory investigations, civil fraud and contract fraud cases have grown increasingly more complex at both the federal and state levels. Economic survival for companies is now dependent on successful interaction with the government.

Gray Reed’s white collar defense practice represents individuals and corporations, both domestic and international, in all facets of government inquiries, including internal investigations, federal and state administrative investigations, grand jury investigations, trial, and appeal.
