Government Investigations into White-Collar Crimes
In addition to the FBI, various other law enforcement agencies on the state or federal levels may participate in white-collar government investigations, such as the Department of Justice (DOJ), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and so forth.
These agencies frequently have considerable financial and legal resources to put toward investigations to gain the evidence needed to press charges. Inquiries frequently involve multiple parties, including people not formally under investigation, and can last several months or even years as the government takes methodical steps to build and strengthen its case.
Examples of suspected activities that may prompt white-collar government investigations include but are not limited to:
- Campaign finance violations
- Consumer protection law violations
- Federal securities violations
- Fraudulent activity
- Market manipulation
- Regulatory violations
Depending on the gravity of the crime you or your business is suspected of, several potential outcomes could follow a guilty verdict, ranging from minor fines to lengthy prison sentences. However, even without a criminal conviction, there are still severe ramifications to consider, such as civil lawsuits from stakeholders or a compromised reputation among investors and customers. In many cases, these consequences can be more detrimental to a business’s operations than a criminal conviction. It is therefore in a business’s best interest to take proactive steps at the investigation stage in order to defend itself against potential charges and protect its reputation.
