Mark Rutherford
Defense Services (Civil & Criminal)
Our Defense Services concern the broad range of regulatory and criminal law issues faced by our business clients. Our clients include businesses and their owners and representatives.

The number of federal and state laws governing business has grown exponentially over the last three decades, resulting in much confusion and a growing number of enforcement actions against businesses, their owners and employees. Furthermore, areas traditionally handled through administrative regulation and civil fines have increasingly become criminalized, resulting in a significant increase in criminal prosecutions of businesses, their owners and employees. The growing number of prosecutions and enforcement actions also has resulted in the issuance of many more subpoenas to businesses and requests for interviews by law enforcement.

In addition to resolving conflicts after they occur, we also assist clients to develop effective compliance programs that prevent claims and provide protection in the event of criminal prosecution.

The defense of claims of regulatory or criminal corporate misconduct and related civil and administrative proceedings include:
• Administrative and Licensing Action
• Antitrust Law Violations
• Environmental Law Violations
• False Claims Act
• Forfeiture Proceedings
• Government Contract and Procurement Fraud
• International Trade and Customs Fraud
• Mail and Wire Fraud
• Money Laundering
• Mortgage Fraud
• Qui Tam/Whistleblower Defense
• Regulatory Compliance Programs
• RICO Violation
• Securities Law Violations including Sarbanes-Oxley
• Tax Fraud
• US Patriot Act Violations
