Yankwitt LLP represents individuals and businesses in connection with criminal and regulatory investigations and in litigation. We defend financial institutions, hedge funds, banks, and other companies across industry sectors in cases involving a broad range of allegations before the courts, government agencies, and regulatory bodies. We also conduct internal investigations, and counsel our clients when subpoenaed to appear at depositions and trials.

Yankwitt LLP’s skilled attorneys draw on years of experience as federal prosecutors and in private practice at leading New York City law firms to continually explore creative ways to resolve criminal and regulatory matters by ending investigations as quickly as possible without charges or penalties against our clients.

If litigation does arise, Yankwitt LLP has the experience you want to defend your white-collar crime case. The firm’s deep bench of attorneys, who have worked in leadership positions with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, uniquely positions us to understand these cases, the possible outcomes and what it takes to defend them. That, coupled with our unyielding approach to litigation, makes our attorneys your most valued partner in these cases. White collar crime cases can be disruptive. Having a skilled attorney to mitigate the damage as efficiently and effectively as possible so that you can return to your business is our common goal.
