Vedder Price

Government Enforcement and Special Investigations Vedder Service

The Vedder Price Government Enforcement and Special Investigations group has a long history representing companies, boards of directors, board committees, executives and other individuals in government and regulatory investigations, internal investigations, white collar criminal investigations and related litigation.

Our experienced team includes former attorneys at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, former prosecutors with the U.S. Department of Justice and former senior staff with self-regulatory organizations and financial services companies.

We bring skill and experience to representing our clients facing government investigations. We mobilize quickly and efficiently to consider the potential issues and to develop effective defense strategies. We understand the financial and reputational stakes involved in these sensitive matters. One of our greatest strengths is our ability to work closely and credibly with the government to resolve the government’s concerns before the commencement of an enforcement action or prosecution. However, when the situation demands, we vigorously defend our clients in government actions, drawing on the deep and diverse resources of the firm to effectively represent our clients.

Vedder Price is frequently retained by companies, boards of directors and board committees to conduct internal investigations into allegations raised by government agencies or whistleblowers. We advise corporate clients on establishing and implementing compliance programs. We promote proactive and early remediation to maximize benefits to companies and to enhance the possibility of receiving cooperation credit from regulators and prosecutors. We are on the leading edge of complex and challenging regulatory and compliance issues facing our clients.
