We have experience representing clients in civil litigation matters that typically are offshoots of criminal or regulatory investigations in which we have been involved. These actions can be filed by shareholders relating to investigations being conducted by the Securities and Exchange Commission or private persons filing civil actions that relate to allegations of civil RICO, fraud, civil theft, conversion or other related civil actions that involve allegations of banking fraud, mortgage fraud, or false claims actions brought by state or federal governments.
We also consult and coordinate with outside civil counsel when it comes to advising a client who might have criminal liability as it relates to questioning or producing documents in a civil matter. We have consulted in many civil matters to help determine if a client has a valid Fifth Amendment assertion and defend that claim when necessary. We have represented clients in civil depositions, filed pleadings defending an attack to a Fifth Amendment assertion, filed motions to quash subpoenas and for protective orders, motions to stay proceedings, and cases involving civil restraining orders or injunctions.
Finally, we have acted as local counsel in civil litigation matters filed in both the local state and federal courts.
