The lawyers at Gaddy Weis are recognized as some of the premiere white collar defense lawyers in Missouri and Kansas. Our lawyers understand and appreciate that a government investigation threatens the financial stability and future business opportunities of a company or an individual. A publicly-filed criminal charge can cause irreparable damage, regardless of the ultimate outcome of the case. And the possibility of a criminal conviction involves the highest stakes a person or a company can face. The initial response to a criminal investigation and early defense strategy can dramatically impact the ultimate outcome of the case.
Our lawyers have represented businesses and individuals at all stages of the criminal investigatory process. We assist clients with responding to grand jury or administrative subpoenas that request business records or witness testimony. We represent clients in responding to requests for interviews or information made by law enforcement agencies. We have represented numerous targets of a criminal investigation before charges are filed, which affords a unique opportunity to conduct a defense investigation and engage in dialogue with the authorities before final decisions are made. Indeed, some of our best work has occurred where the government elected not to pursue criminal charges and the investigation did not reach the public light.
In the event criminal charges are pursued, the attorneys at Gaddy Weis have the trial experience to mount a vigorous and creative defense in court or to guide the client through the plea negotiations and the federal sentencing guidelines. Our lawyers have represented clients involved in all types of complex white collar cases, including mail and wire fraud, antitrust, securities fraud, false claims, health care fraud, environmental violations, procurement fraud, bribery and gratuities, bank fraud, conflict of interest, computer crimes, tax evasion, espionage, and mortgage and lending fraud. If you or your company faces a criminal inquiry or a criminal prosecution, let us help you navigate the white collar minefield.
