Business crimes – otherwise know as "white collar crimes” – are on the rise given the recent increased scrutiny by federal agencies governing the standards and moralities of the business community. Consequently, boardrooms, executives, and entrepreneurs are increasingly turning to an experienced criminal lawyer to regularly advise them on new developments in business law. Business crimes include a variety of nonviolent offenses usually committed in commercial situations and often for financial gain. Business crimes include:
- Antitrust Violations
- Fraud of Various Types (Bankruptcy, Mail, Wire, Insurance)
- Environmental Schemes
- Securities Violations
- Tax Evasion
Defendants who are convicted of a business crime may face fines, imprisonment, restitution, forfeiture, supervised release, home detention, or a combination thereof. Unlike other crimes, business crimes usually involve a wide-range of intricate statutes and complicated standards of proof.
