For over 120 years, the Wolcott Rivers Gates Criminal Defense Attorney Team have helped many people like you who have been facing various White Collar investigations and criminal charges.

Our White Collar Defense and Investigation attorneys represent businesses, individuals and public officials in a wide range of investigations and prosecutions.  The cases we take generally involve the threat of criminal action brought by the United States against our clients in taxation, antitrust, procurement fraud, false claims and other regulatory matters and government contract disputes. 

To best serve our clients, we deploy the full range of our skills, experience and resources and collaborate with our other practice groups.  This allows us to work with clients across a wide variety of white collar business matters. Our typical case involves representation in grand jury and other governmental investigations, U.S. Federal and State trials and appeals, but we also assist our governmental contracting clients with compliance and internal-controls reviews/audits.   

When facing the power and weight of the federal government it is important to have legal representation that prepares and defends in anticipation of the fast moving pace of a white collar case.  Wolcott Rivers Gates’ attorneys navigate the inevitably challenging and unpredictable waters of these cases by providing sound advice to our clients and balance legal strategy with business survival.
