Mr. Perry brings his enforcement experience as well as his substantial prior experience in white collar criminal defense practice, and as a firm, we represent corporate clients and individual officers and directors at every stage of government investigations and enforcement actions – including white collar criminal matters – initiated by state and federal agencies, including the state Attorney Generals, Department of Justice, SEC, CFTC, and FINRA.

Kennyhertz Perry’s enforcement practice regularly defends clients against allegations involving a wide array of business contexts in federal and state grand jury investigations, trials, and appeals. In particular, we have represented clients in enforcement matters and related litigation involving a range of subject areas including Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), consumer financial services, money laundering and Bank Secrecy Act, securities, commodities, options, and derivatives fraud, state and federal RICO laws, False Claims Act, and insurance fraud.

We have handled all sides of an investigation, and are uniquely qualified to help you respond.  If your business becomes the subject of a government probe, we provide unparalleled legal and strategic advice.  We strive to resolve the investigation as promptly as possible with as little impact on your business as necessary.

When businesses and individuals face aggressive government enforcement, matters formerly handled through civil or regulatory processes now result in criminal investigations. Our firm will, in turn, aggressively represent corporations or individuals facing criminal or other enforcement proceedings. We understand avoiding prosecution is the goal, and our government experience helps our clients navigate the difficult process of investigation. Our extensive experience with compliance programs helps us advise our clients on best practices to proactively prevent criminal problems. But if clients face criminal charges, we have the trial experience to mount a zealous defense.
