If you own or operate a business that is subject to government regulation and the government comes knocking on your door and says you’re under investigation, this is where you call me and we assess the situation.
This is a very complex area of the law and many rules and regulations are open to various interpretations, and that is why it is best to discuss issues like this with Miller Leonard PC. Unfortunately, the Government has many options and nearly unlimited resources. It is crucial to act quickly to ascertain what the Government is interested in and how your business can best remedy the situation.
Regulatory defense is tied quite closely to compliance counseling, as the corporate governance of your business helps ensure that your business is operating within the bounds of the law. Whether the top management of your firm knows and understands the law or not, issues in the area of regulatory defense change rapidly. At Miller Leonard, PC, we’re on top of those changes.
When it comes to regulatory defense, we ensure your company is doing business ethically and in compliance with the law. What helps us defend you is that we know how to prevent and detect any violations, to identify and manage risks and how to implement a complete corporate infrastructure well versed on ethical conduct.
Our experience will be your experience when we discuss regulatory defense, as defending any charges in this area typically tends to arise from either not complying with your operating regulations or interpreting them in a manner that is perceived as being illegal – or in contravention of your operating regulations. Any regulator or prosecutor that brings a criminal or civil action is basing their decision, and the possible penalties (civil or criminal) on the quality and extent of a company’s compliance system(s). However, even the most robust compliance programs cannot detect every possible violation or scenario. In the event your business finds itself under investigation, choose an attorney who knows how the Government approaches these types of cases.
We represent clients who need us the most, whether that is a bank officer or entrepreneur. Our approach to all cases is to thoroughly investigate every angle, approach and possible theory that may apply to your case. We strive to follow every ethical line of attack available under the law. While our cases may be complex, we leave no stone unturned on the quest for justice for our clients.
