Wiley Rein LLP

White Collar Defense & Government Investigations | CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS

With a grand jury investigation looming, the question of whether to cooperate or litigate is loaded with risk and complication.  Wiley Rein's team of former prosecutors, and its supporting cast of former government officials, gives the Group deep experience defending corporate and individual clients from criminal prosecutions.  Over the last few years we have defended a variety of corporations, executives, and government officials, including, for example:

  • A government contractor under grand jury investigation for providing gratuities to an agency official.
  • U.S. congressmen and other political appointees in investigations for violations of ethics rules, the Hatch Act, and other improprieties.
  • Multiple companies alleged to have falsified testing data.
  • A government official indicted for making false statements and obstructing justice in connection with the agency and congressional investigations into lobbyist Jack Abramoff's dealings.
  • A pharmaceutical executive indicted for conspiring to violate the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) and federal securities laws.
  • An agency head accused of submitting false ethics reports.
  • The chief executive of an international pharmaceutical manufacturer indicted for conspiring to violate federal food and drug laws and making false statements in connection with the sale of products in the United States.
