Practice Areas

Compliance and Regulatory Advice and Review

Businesses are coming under increased scrutiny by regulatory authorities.  Paul and Chris provide corporate clients cost-effective compliance and regulatory advice, particularly those in highly regulated industries such as banking and securities, health care, and government contracts.  Paul and Chris have significant experience developing, implementing, and reviewing compliance policies and practices for businesses, including those involving anti-fraud and anti-money laundering, anti-kickback and business ethics, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and government contracting.  From their years of combined experience, especially as former federal prosecutors, they know that an effective, yet profit-sensitive, compliance program is critical to reducing risk and avoiding significant regulatory investigations in the first place, or, in the unfortunate event clients do find themselves under scrutiny, obtaining the most favorable resolution of the matter—including avoiding criminal charges.

As businesses work to reduce or avoid expensive in-house legal departments and concentrate more on doing what they do best, Paul and Chris’s business clients are increasingly turning to them for general outside counsel advice.  They have experience advising and representing clients in a wide range of legal areas, including contracts, employment law and non-compete agreements, corporate fiduciary duties, and professional liability.  Because of their small firm size and years of experience in both government and private practice, Paul and Chris are uniquely positioned to provide high-quality general counsel advice to businesses in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
