White Collar Defense / Government Misconduct / Government Investigations

NY and Boston White Collar Defense Attorneys / Government Misconduct

The government acts as a unique adversary that must be held to high standards. Government misconduct and mistakes during investigative stages can strengthen defenses. As appropriate, our attorneys place government conduct under a microscope. Constitutional violations can mean suppression of evidence, which in turn can mean a dismissal of charges. PSD’s New York and Boston white collar defense attorneys have not only won suppression motions, but have also generated findings of bad faith and the like on the part of government actors. We are a go-to white collar law firm for high profile matters and those involving complex government investigations.

Mounting a defense to an investigation or prosecution involves an intense and creative development of evidence. All of our attorneys have sophisticated experience in criminal matters. Many of our biggest successes consist of clients avoiding any charges and sensitive matters never seeing the light of day. Barry Pollack leads this practice area. He is a former federal prosecutor who chaired the Government Investigations and Defense Practice Group of a large international law firm for more than seven years. Chambers USA recognized him as a leading white collar criminal defense lawyer. Also, he has earned an AV rating (the highest available) for integrity and competency. He has also earned a Super Lawyer designation in the area of criminal defense.
