Transforming our insight into your advantage

When the government comes knocking, you can be sure of one thing: not only is your business on the line, but so is your reputation. You need trusted counsel ready to assess the potential risks and disruption of a civil, criminal, or regulatory investigation.

At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, our core objective is to go above and beyond to preserve, protect, and defend our clients. This is especially true in the case of white-collar defense and government investigation practice work. When it comes to your business interests, individual rights, and reputation, our law firm is at your service, offering innovative solutions regardless of the situation.

Our experience in white-collar defense and government investigations matters

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s white-collar lawyers have extensive experience litigating claims in federal and state courts and defending clients in civil and criminal proceedings. Led by a former U.S. Department of Defense Inspector General and federal prosecutor and a former U.S. Department of Justice Trial Attorney and New York State Special Assistant Attorney General, our white-collar team has the institutional background and legal acumen to handle any government investigation.

We pride ourselves on providing counsel concerning investigative interviews, subpoenas, search warrants, civil investigative demands, and beyond. At the outset of litigation, our lawyers focus on obtaining a dismissal of criminal charges. We also lead clients through internal investigations designed to understand the facts and circumstances of a matter. If an early resolution is unobtainable, our defense lawyers employ their years of trial expertise to defend individuals and businesses.

Our unique insight gives clients a decided advantage where their civil liberties are concerned. With lawyers experienced in litigation in the areas of antitrust violations, bank fraud, congressional investigations and oversight, false claims actions, Foreign Corrupt Practice Act (FCPA) and International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) violations, money laundering, and fraud, our team of legal professionals is fully equipped to advise you when you need it most.

What we do

  • Conduct internal investigations on behalf of corporate clients
  • Assist clients in preparing investigative reports
  • Establish compliance programs to help clients avoid government actions
  • Formulate strategies and respond to informal requests for information, document subpoenas, and search warrants
