We defend businesses and individuals in criminal investigations, regulatory enforcement actions, and prosecutions.
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also known as “RICO,” was created by the government to eradicate organized crime. Today, RICO is applied much more broadly than initially envisioned. Many different state and federal crimes can qualify as RICO crimes when they are committed on behalf of a criminal enterprise, including money laundering, extortion, theft, fraud, wire fraud, bankruptcy fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy, embezzlement, bribery, and drug trafficking. Like other complex criminal statutes, RICO is both difficult to understand and difficult to prove. Our extensive experience defending both civil and criminal RICO cases gives us a unique perspective on how to successfully successfully defend them, resulting in landmark victories for our clients.
