White Collar

Smith Pachter McWhorter’s White Collar practice runs the gamut of assistance related to potential white collar liabilities, from counseling on clients’ compliance programs, policies and procedures; to conducting internal corporate investigations; to representation of corporate and individual defendants in matters involving the Department of Justice (DOJ), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and other regulatory agencies; to defending civil and criminal matters in federal court.  In addition, the head of Smith Pachter McWhorter’s White Collar practice, Joseph P. Covington, was recently appointed as Independent Compliance Monitor to SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and International Development Association (World Bank), with a mandate to review and evaluate the company’s global anti-corruption compliance program. Our White Collar attorneys have also published extensively, including authoring a treatise on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (Practicing Under the U.S. Anticorruption Laws) with other practitioners in the field.
