White Collar Crime

In recent years there has been increased scrutiny of fraudulent activities within many industries including health care, insurance and securities.  In response, Congress has addressed these activities generally, through Title 18 of the U.S. Code, as well as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Internal Revenue Code, Securities Act of 1933, Exchange Act of 1934 and various environmental protection acts, among others.
In order to meet this growing area of criminal and quasi-criminal defense, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin developed a White Collar Crime Practice Group to assist and defend clients when confronted with federal or state investigations and prosecutions.
This group stands ready to assist clients when confronted with allegedly unlawful activities such as:

  • Health care fraud
  • Data breach and other privacy violations
  • Trade secret theft
  • Securities fraud
  • Antitrust violations
  • Tax evasion
  • Environmental law violations
  • Consumer/commercial fraud
  • Bribery, and other corruption involving public officials
  • Money laundering
  • Embezzlement and other forms of dishonest business schemes

Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a leading defense litigation firm that represents and advises insurers, self-insured businesses and professionals in a wide range of professional liability, casualty, health law, employment and workers' compensation matters.  With more than 480 attorneys, 20 offices and 30-plus distinct practice groups, Marshall Dennehey is uniquely positioned to assist clients in avoiding litigation, as well as provide them with a vigorous defense in the event of claims and suits made against them.
