We defend businesses and individuals in criminal investigations, regulatory enforcement actions, and prosecutions.
An IRS audit may result in the government collecting the taxes owed, penalties, and interest. In extreme cases, the IRS refers cases to its criminal division for federal prosecution. Some of the most commonly charged tax offenses include preparing and filing a false tax return, willfully failing to file a tax return, evading the payment of taxes, overstating the amount of tax deductions, and obstruction.
We have successfully defended our clients indicted for tax fraud in several jurisdictions, resulting in dramatic wins for our clients that were facing otherwise dire circumstances. But more often than that, we have been able to successfully negotiate with government decision-makers and convince them to quietly decline prosecution or settle for civil penalties, allowing our clients to move on with their lives.
