When the stakes are high, we can help.
Today’s regulatory environment presents a myriad of challenges for corporations doing business domestically and globally. SouthBank represents companies and individuals involved in complex matters at the federal, state, and local levels. Our team includes former prosecutors, law enforcement agents, in-house lawyers from major military contractors, and other seasoned attorneys who possess a deep understanding of internal risk assessment and criminal investigations. Our experience allows us to identify key issues and risks quickly and help clients resolve situations efficiently and in a timely manner.
Invest in us when your reputation is on the line.
Whether you are a corporate entity or an individual executive, criminal charges or other legal issues can irreparably harm to your reputation. One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that the problems will simply go away, even if they know they have done nothing wrong. Even if you’re ultimately exonerated, your reputation could suffer long-term harm, resulting in lost revenue and lost opportunities.
Our team of aggressive attorneys comes in, takes control of the situation, and helps you get ahead of the process. We work side by side with you to protect your reputation and minimize the damage. Whether you are facing a subpoena for records, grand jury testimony, a regulatory inquiry, a congressional investigation, an indictment, or some other issue, we can guide you through the process and reach a resolution.
We also conduct thorough internal and independent investigations at the request of in-house counsel, independent monitors, and others in highly sensitive and complex situations. While we leave no stone unturned, we also don’t waste time and money on fruitless searches, so you never have to worry about paying exorbitant legal fees for a non-result. Instead, SouthBank attorneys evaluate exposure and recommend prudent courses of action, allowing clients to get back to focusing on their business as soon as possible.
If you are already under investigation, you may also want to consider a parallel investigation. Government-led investigations tend to move slowly and can drag on for months. We can help you get in front of the situation by identifying the issue before they do. We can then begin discussing with investigators a potential resolution, helping you resolve the issue more quickly and cost-effectively. As part of this process, we can often control the narrative and minimize the damage to your reputation.
If you are facing criminal charges, you need someone on your side.
SouthBank also represents individuals facing investigations or charges involving federal and state criminal law, particularly in white-collar matters involving allegations of financial fraud, tax violations, healthcare fraud, public corruption, fraud against the government, and similar areas. These are often crises that can destroy your business or your career.
It’s critical you understand the prosecutors or other government agents are not on your side. They will lead you to believe everything will be resolved if you just cooperate. While this may be true to some degree, it doesn’t mean you will get a fair result or a positive outcome. When you work with us, you get a team of attorneys who are invested in your future, and we work tirelessly for the best possible outcome.
Our team has the experience and credentials you need.
Experience matters when defending a criminal investigation or assessing corporate risk. Our team includes former prosecutors who have collectively handled hundreds of investigations and tried scores of cases. Our former FBI agent knows how federal agencies conduct criminal investigations and prosecutions. One of our lawyers is a former general counsel at a military contractor who is well-versed in corporate compliance issues and, in particular, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. We have the experience you need to solve your problem.
The sooner you call us, the sooner you can put this behind you.
When it comes to white-collar investigations, time is not on your side. Our team is ready to stand behind you and give you all the help you need. Call or email us today to get started on moving forward.
