Protecting You During Investigations
BLF focuses on criminal defense during both the trial and the preceding investigation. If you have reason to believe you are or are about to be investigated for a crime, it is advisable to seek out legal counsel with experience in criminal defense practice to guide you through the process. The first order of business in representing companies and individuals during criminal investigations is to have your lawyer contact the investigative body and redirect all government communications to your attorney so that all conversations between you and the authorities are halted.
BLF has represented corporate clients in criminal investigations involving violations of the Sherman Act, the Securities Act, Federal Pharmaceutical laws and in charges involving tax evasion.
We have successfully represented many individuals in the investigative stages for crimes involving export crimes, embezzlement, grand larceny, wire fraud and insurance fraud charges as well as violent crimes and many more.
If you are aware of an ongoing investigation, you can be considered lucky in some respects. Many others are not aware that they have been investigated until they are placed under arrest. Sometimes investigations are only investigations. It is best to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer retained early on to help ensure that investigations do not turn into formal criminal charges.
