TLP strength Advantage
Our firm brings particular strengths to the representation of corporations or individuals who face criminal, congressional, or other enforcement proceedings. Each of our US offices includes attorneys with extensive criminal law experience, as prosecutors and defense lawyers.
Reputationally, our colleagues must rely on high levels of integrity and credibility in advocating for clients with government officials with high levels of power and discretion. We understand that the best result for the client is to avoid any prosecution, and our significant government experience helps our clients navigate the difficult process of investigation. And our extensive experience with compliance programs helps us advise our clients on best practices to prevent criminal problems from developing. But if clients face criminal charges, we have the extensive trial and appellate experience to mount a vigorous defense on their behalf.
