Warner Norcross Creates New Blog Focused on White Collar Criminal Defense
Attorneys from the law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP have launched a new blog focused on compliance and criminal defense.
The new blog, The Right Side of the Law
, will focus on corporate, financial and healthcare compliance issues, best practices for internal investigations, as well as developments in white collar criminal defense. Sarah Howard, a partner and chair of the Criminal Defense group, and senior associates Madelaine Lane and Jeanne Long will be among the principle bloggers.
Specifically, The Right Side of the Law will feature:
- Strategy and tools for conducting internal investigations
- Considerations for developing and implementing policies
- Best practices for compliance and voluntary disclosure
- Aggregation of appellate decisions at the state level
- Local and national prosecution trends for white-collar crime
- Federal sentencing issues
- News about white-collar crime at the federal, state and local levels
“As the name implies, our new blog is designed to help businesses remain good corporate citizens,” Howard said. “Our goal is to provide a convenient resource that serves as a clearinghouse for information on white-collar crime, from insider trading to whistleblowers to Medicare fraud to consumer protection. Our legal team watches – and predicts – enforcement priorities, so we can advise businesses on how to be prepared in the face of enforcement actions, subpoenas or litigation.”
The Criminal Defense group at Warner Norcross provides a wide array of pre-charge, preventive services, including design of compliance plans and performance of internal investigations. Warner Norcross attorneys also have extensive experience defending a wide variety of criminal charges, through motion hearings, trials, sentencing and appeals. As a full-service law firm, Warner provides counsel in false claims and anti-kickback statutes, health care law, consumer protection and product regulation, securities regulation and environmental protection, among others.
