White Collar Crime Defense Attorneys

O & A Law White Collar Crime Services

white collar crime attorney albany nyWhite Collar crimes are complex, detail driven and often hinge on the nuances and ambiguities of the law.

More than ever, white collar prosecutions are driven by politics – whether policy preference or a political agenda to “go after” a certain type of fraud or business practice, we know that the policies politicians attempt to enforce drive White Collar investigations and prosecutions. As a result, there are trends in White Collar crimes from securities prosecutions following the dot com bust of the early 2000’s and the Mortgage Backed-Securities and Mortgage Fraud prosecutions following the housing bubble to the Medicare and Medicaid Fraud prosecutions following the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Awareness of these trends makes us invaluable as defense attorneys and also as advisers and consultants who bring the resources and experience of our entire firm to guide businesses and their employees away from the practices that will put them at risk of investigation and prosecution in an increasingly complex and litigious environment.  We are able to engage early in investigations and work tirelessly to prevent an investigation from escalating into criminal charges against a company, a non-profit or their employees. When a trial is required, we bring decades of trial experience to defending our clients.

We defend clients against White Collar crimes including:

  • Honest Services Fraud
  • Medicare/Medicaid Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Various Financial Frauds
  • Bribery
  • Extortion
  • Computer and Internet Crimes
  • Financial Conspiracies and Schemes
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgeries
  • Identity Theft
