New York criminal investigation lawyer Paul B. Bergman represents targets of grand jury investigations, as well as targets of investigations conducted by the district attorney’s office or the state attorney’s office. He is prepared to mobilize quickly to ensure that clients are protected as soon as they become aware that they are under investigation.
Internal Corporate Investigations
The government relies on corporations’ fear of being prosecuted. For this reason, when a business becomes aware of a potential crime that has been committed within, it may conduct its own internal corporate investigation. These investigations may be spurred by a whistleblower. While these are not criminal investigations, they could potentially lead to criminal charges or termination. The targets of these investigations have the right to have an experienced attorney like Paul B. Bergman by their side to advise them of their rights.
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigations can lead to civil actions in federal court or before an administrative law judge. They may also lead to criminal charges. Paul B. Bergman has the experience to protect the interests of those targeted in SEC investigations.
