Areas of Practice

White Collar

SKV’s award winning white-collar lawyers—including two former federal prosecutors, a former city attorney, and three former judicial clerks—have played major roles in some of the country’s most significant white-collar cases over the past 30 years: the savings and loan crisis, the fall of Enron, Major League Baseball’s steroid scandal, post-hurricane Katrina investigations into alleged euthanasia, numerous of the country’s largest FCPA investigations, the BP commodities trading indictment, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and public corruptions cases against public officials.

In addition to handling the most sensitive and high-profile matters, SKV’s white-collar lawyers have extensive experience in criminal trials and appeals, parallel civil and administrative proceedings, internal investigations, and government investigations of companies and individuals, whether as a “target,” “subject,” or “witness.”

Our recent successes include dismissals or acquittals in cases alleging insider trading, commodities manipulation, environmental violations, and public corruption.  SKV has also helped hundreds of clients avoid charges altogether in investigations into alleged financial fraud, tax evasion, FCPA violations, theft of trade secrets, commodities manipulation, money laundering, and more.
