Whether the charges are brought by federal or state prosecutors, white-collar cases are often complicated. They can involve numerous transactions with a paper trail that must be analyzed and defended. White-collar cases require intelligence and diligence, Gary Cutler has the training and ability to defend you.
White-collar cases can range from violations of agency regulations to crimes involving fraud or theft. Usually, a case will begin with a notice to the individual or company that a government agency is investigating. The notice may come in the form of a subpoena for documents or to testify. It may also come with an unexpected interview by government agents. It is important to have capable and experienced counsel at this stage to negotiate with the agency and the prosecutor. Often, what an agency believes is a crime turns out not to be so. Agency regulations can be vague or may extend beyond the authority of the agency. Knowledgeable counsel must intervene to convince the government that the law or regulations do not apply to the particular situation being investigated.
After the investigation is completed but has not been resolved satisfactorily to the company's interests, companies and corporations may desire to sign a non-prosecution agreement with the government to satisfy potential charges. Often such an agreement comes with conditions and monitoring dictated by the government. It is important to have experienced counsel to negotiate the terms of a non-prosecution agreement.
The government may also proceed to indictment. At this stage, it is important to have experienced trial counsel. Trial counsel will review what usually amounts to volumes of documents and interview numerous witnesses to analyze the case, arrive at a winning strategy and put up the best defense.
