The U.S. government can be relentless when investigating and prosecuting business crimes. Individuals and companies in the government’s crosshairs need effective representation.
Raipher, P.C., an experienced white collar and business crimes defense firm, represents individuals and companies who are under investigation for or have been charged with crimes related to the running of a business. The firm has extensive experience and a record of success representing clients accused of business crimes, such as:
- Industrial espionage
- Violation of import/export regulations
- RICO violations
- Money laundering
- Industrial Espionage
The Economic Espionage Act of 1996 protects the interests of U.S. businesses from foreign intelligence agencies and from other companies using espionage to steal proprietary information that gives a company its marketing edge. This includes protection of secret formulas, manufacturing practices, and trade secrets.
Individuals facing charges of industrial espionage are frequently also charged with the white collar crimes of wire fraud, mail fraud, and receipt of stolen property if they are in possession of illegally obtained documents.
Import / Export Violations
International trade presents a number of risks for criminal prosecution and trade violations. Some risks relate to laws specific to the products being imported or exported (for example, technology, weapons, drugs, plant materials, food products, animals and animal products). Another area of risk for exposure to criminal charges relates to the manner in which business is conducted, which can include actions covered under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
