BLF focuses on criminal defense at the criminal case and criminal investigation levels. If you have reason to believe you have or are about to be investigated for a crime it is advisable to seek out legal counsel with experience in criminal defense practice to guide you through the process. The first order of business in representing companies and individuals in criminal investigations is to have your lawyer contact the investigative body and redirect all government communications to your attorney so that all conversations between you and the authorities are halted.
BLF has represented corporate clients in criminal investigations involving allegations involving violations of the Sherman Act, the Securities Act, Federal Pharmaceutical laws and in charges involving tax evasion.
We have successfully represented many individuals in the investigative stages for crimes involving export crimes, embezzlement, grand larceny, wire fraud and insurance fraud charges as well as violent crimes and many more.
The person or entity undergoing criminal investigation can count itself lucky in some respects. Many others are not aware that they have been investigated until they are being placed under arrest. Sometimes investigations are only investigations. It is best to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer retained early on to help insure that investigations do not turn into formal criminal charges.
