Federal financial investigations or defending a financial case in federal court is often referred to as white-collar defense. In these cases, federal prosecutors often indict on a wide range of activities that occur from financial transactions, banking activities, and wire or mail transactions. Bank Fraud is often the broad allegation and a series of suspect business transactions is often what is being investigated. Conspiracy is the companion charge that often lurks beneath the surface. Renowned lawyer Clarence Darrow complained of the vague suspicion that accompanies a charge of conspiracy over fifty years ago and yet still today the complaint and danger of a conspiracy accusation are real.
Early involvement by an experienced attorney is essential in evaluating a client's course of action. Is the government seeking documents from you? Are you or your employees being subpoenaed to a federal grand jury? Have you been interviewed by a federal investigatory agency?
Perhaps the Sixth Amendment right to counsel and the Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, is never more valuable than in these initial contacts with the government. Lying to a federal agent is a separate offense from the investigation itself. Having counsel with you at these meeting is the best course of action, especially when you are innocent and have done nothing wrong. Not everyone sees all complex financial transactions from the same perspective.
