Government Enforcement And White Collar Crime

Breeding Carter is recognized for significant experience in all aspects of corporate criminal defense and enforcement related litigation, including internal investigations, client representation in grand jury investigations, management of parallel criminal and civil proceedings, extraditions and counseling on foreign criminal investigations and advice on voluntary disclosure and compliance issues. We leverage the knowledge and abilities of our experienced litigators to develop comprehensive strategies that address the legal and factual defenses, as well as the public, media and other collateral consequences of a case.

We advise clients on cutting edge issues in the fields of white collar criminal defense, international trade, legislative, administrative and regulatory compliance. We approach every engagement with the overriding goals of delivering high-quality legal services as efficiently as possible and producing results that promote a lasting professional relationship with our clients.

Breeding Carter’s global resources enable our Knoxville attorneys to anticipate and respond to parallel investigations and proceedings routinely pursued by federal and state criminal and civil enforcement authorities. The firm defends corporations, directors, officers and employees against allegations in various business contexts and at every stage of the enforcement process, including federal and state grand jury investigations, trials and appeals. We handle investigations and civil and administrative proceedings brought by regulatory bodies such as the DOJ, SEC, CFTC, FINRA, FTC, OFAC, IRS, federal and state banking regulators and state law enforcement agencies. The firm also represents companies and individuals in connection with congressional investigations and inquiries.

Our corporate criminal defense lawyers provide critical advice at every stage of an investigation or case. Some of our greatest successes have never become public because victory was achieved by convincing prosecutors not to pursue charges against our clients.
