Hodgson Russ has extensive experience representing public and private companies, individual officers and directors, and employees in the investigation and defense of charges brought by state and federal enforcement and regulatory authorities. We advise clients at all stages of a case from investigation to trial and appeal and have successfully represented clients in high-profile cases across the country.

Our attorneys represent clients in a wide variety of federal and state criminal proceedings, including health care fraud, money laundering and structuring, tax charges, mail and wire fraud, securities fraud, false statements and claims, and environmental offenses.

Our Business Crimes & Criminal Investigations team includes not only experienced white-collar criminal attorneys and former federal and state prosecutors, but also attorneys with experience in cybersecurity and data privacy, commercial transactions, public companies, health care, taxation, and environmental law.

Hodgson Russ attorneys are actively involved in substantive areas that are currently the focus of government enforcement initiatives, both criminal and civil. For example, we have substantial experience in the area of health care fraud and abuse, including under the Medicare and Medicaid programs. We have represented large hospital systems, nursing homes, physician practices, home health agencies, and medical device companies in a variety of criminal and regulatory investigations. We defend doctors accused of over-prescribing and over-charging. We also routinely represent both companies and individuals in connection with matters being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and/or the Department of Justice.
