White Collar and Internal Investigations

The Theodora Oringher White Collar and Internal Investigations Group has an outstanding reputation for its lawyers and the outcomes they have achieved. Our noted trial lawyers have been recognized consistently on a state and national level for their deep trial experience and dramatic results in high stakes litigation. These skilled litigators include former state and federal prosecutors with keen insights into the practices of government regulators, investigators, and prosecutors which has allowed our clients to short circuit investigations or avoid them altogether. Many prominent companies and individuals have been successfully represented by our team in a vast array of circumstances and situations.

In addition, the group has first hand experience in the construction and operation of internal investigations, from small quick inquiries to challenges involving large scale allegations that affect corporations, boards, general counsels, and individuals. We recognize the necessity of discretion in the sensitive work we do and are experienced in gathering information and evidence subtly and quietly. But if we need to defend our clients in the glare of the public spotlight we have no equal to the media experience our litigators possess. Our recommendations in these settings are broad and include independent assessments, strategic communications and crisis management. Our representation of entities, corporations, and companies in this space has resulted in critical returns necessary for the continued protection of our clients.

Uniquely, our white collar litigators utilize their extensive trial experience in commercial and civil litigation settings particularly when claims of fraud are made against or brought by our clients. In that arena, our trial lawyers have a distinct advantage over traditional business litigators with limited trial experience.

Effective tough representation, on behalf of our clients and their interests, in diverse high stakes settings is a hallmark of Theodora Oringher’s White Collar Internal Investigations Group. A brief sample of the types of cases in which we are experienced and adept includes:

  • Criminal Defense
  • Fraud of all types, in a civil or criminal context

Theodora Oringher’s litigators are frequent instructors on white collar issues on a state and national level at the most preeminent seminars for other practitioners and business interests, such as the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).

We also author articles on criminal law related subjects in nationally recognized newspapers, magazines, and lawyer periodicals for practitioners, business groups, and the public.
