Complex Criminal Defense

buildings10Our business law practice also covers complex criminal defense for these companies and individual clients, particularly in regards to white collar crime. We provide professional, aggressive, and responsive legal counsel with a strong emphasis on discretion for clients under investigation. With our extensive experience in criminal defense, we know how to defend clients successfully in complex and high-stakes cases, all while minimizing any damage to the business and individual.

Business Law Southwest, LLC lawyers understand that the most successful outcome for a white collar criminal investigation is not necessarily prevailing in court, but instead, avoiding a criminal charge entirely. We understand that the stigma and effects of a criminal charge can have catastrophic effects on one’s professional and personal lives. It’s for this reason that we  aggressively focus on eliminating and avoiding criminal charges, rather than looking for a “best case scenario.” For us, this is the only best case scenario.

Our attorneys have defended corporations, business owners, directors, officers, and other professionals in these often difficult and complex investigations.Whether you have been charged or you are being investigated, we can assist you in obtaining a favorable outcome in almost any complex or white collar criminal matter, including:

  • Business Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Federal/RICO charges
  • Computer crimes and identity theft
  • Campaign finance violations
  • Securities and Antitrust violations
