Defending the White Collar Case

February 28, 2014

Partner Ellen Brotman is serving as course planner and chairman Richard Scheff is participating as faculty for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s “Defending the White Collar Case.”

The F.B.I. defines white collar crime as “a full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals.” These offenses can range from minor benefits fraud to sophisticated Ponzi schemes, and include the non-filing taxpayer as well as the complicated tax shelter promotion. While each case requires subject matter expertise, the successful defense of white collar cases hinges on a combination of skill, creativity and judgment. These offenses present special challenges: the issues are complex, the documents are confusing and often voluminous and the press coverage may be helping the prosecutor persuade your jurors before you even get a chance to meet them. The lawyers who regularly handle such cases understand that they involve corporate and individual defendants who are targeted as much for who they are as for what they did and their lives, careers and corporate existence are on the line.

This program will examine the substantive and procedural nuances of white collar defense. Topics will explore the white collar case from investigation through appeal; each panel will offer legal updates as well as provide nuts and bolts advice and techniques for each stage of the case.
