Investigations & Compliance

WTO represents clients in the prevention or mitigation of enforcement actions and criminal investigations conducted by federal and state agencies. We are ever mindful of the intense public scrutiny such investigations may precipitate, and we take pains to maintain every discretion possible. WTO attorneys represent clients before professional licensure and review boards. Our clients include corporations, officers, directors, public officials, and service providers. We also provide legal representation to clients who are the targets of governmental investigations including in grand jury proceedings.

Our team helps prevent enforcement actions or criminal investigations by implementing compliance and remediation programs and internal safeguards. Where our internal investigations have revealed gaps in compliance procedures, we have successfully worked to amend administrative lapses and implement new policies, procedures, and safeguards to promote future compliance and avoid adverse actions. We also work with clients to self-disclose issues, when necessary or desirable, to minimize the potential impact of enforcement actions on businesses and employees.
