Criminal / White Collar / Regulatory

Conn Kavanaugh has extensive experience advising businesses and individuals who are the subject of criminal or regulatory investigations or proceedings. Several of our partners are former prosecutors and that expertise is brought to every case we handle.  Each case involves mastery of the underlying facts and an assessment of the risks and exposure so that important decisions can be made.  Many of our clients are individuals, for whom the experience can be particularly difficult. 

The criminal and regulatory matters handled by Conn Kavanaugh involve a close working relationship with counsel for other parties, usually under a protected joint-defense arrangement.  In addition, the centerpiece of our successful representation of clients in this area is the credibility we have with prosecutors.  We pride ourselves on being known as tough negotiators who are not afraid of taking cases to trial. 

Conn Kavanaugh has a thorough understanding of the many and complex federal and state laws in this area.  We stay abreast of trends in the law, some of which develop rapidly.  Our goal in any case is to assist our clients in assessing risks and deciding strategy.  We prepare every case with a view toward presenting it to a jury, but we quickly assess whether a negotiated resolution is the preferred course.

Conn Kavanaugh also represents business entities who may have been victims of criminal conduct by employees or others.  We are experienced in conducting confidential internal investigations to identify wrongdoers, assess harm, and recommend remedial action.
