Investigations & White Collar Defense
Whether by prevention, mitigation, investigation, or defense—minimizing your organization's risk of the significant cost, disruption, and long-term damage caused by a government enforcement action is critical, and having experienced counsel by your side can make all the difference. Former federal prosecutor Steven Schleicher leads Maslon's Investigations & White Collar Defense practice, leveraging particularized skill and extensive knowledge of civil and criminal investigative processes gleaned through decades spent in public service to help clients address and manage their most sensitive internal issues.
We conduct prompt and comprehensive internal investigations for public and private companies as well as public institutions, carefully counseling clients on their unique concerns and helping them make informed decisions about when, whether, and how to self-report suspected violations of state and federal regulations. Should an emergency occur, we will respond swiftly and discreetly to resolve your matters and get your organization back to business as usual—always with consideration of the impact on image, brand, customers, and key stakeholders.
