White Collar DefenseWhite collar crimes include offenses such as antitrust, healthcare fraud, medicare fraud, fraud, tax offenses, securities violations, money laundering, embezzlement, bribery, public corruption, theft of trade secrets, economic espionage, and environmental crimes generally committed in commercial settings by individuals or corporations for financial gain.
White collar crimes are punishable under various federal statutes, including the Bank Secrecy Act, the False Claims Act, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1970, the Securities Act and Securities Exchange Act, the Sherman Act, and the Tax Code, as well as environmental statutes, intellectual property statutes, and numerous provisions of the Federal Criminal Code. These statutes are enforced by a number of federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Trade Commission, the Internal Revenue Service, the Secret Service, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Penalties for violations of these statutes may be significant and may include terms of imprisonment, fines, home detention, forfeiture, restitution, and supervised release.
