At a time when the lines between regulatory, civil, and criminal investigations have become blurred, the ability to provide a comprehensive and nimble defense on multiple fronts sets apart Watkins & Eager’s white collar defense group. Our lawyers have tried a substantial number of cases, both civil and criminal, and come from a wide variety of practice backgrounds. A former federal prosecutor, along with seasoned commercial litigators and other subject matter experts in the financial, health care, and business fields, lead our diverse team of white collar lawyers. Our broad base of experience in the white collar arena makes Watkins & Eager unique among its peers. We have successfully defended clients in criminal and civil actions against a broad array of charges asserted by government agencies.  We handle internal and external investigations and understand how to work with prosecutors, state and federal agencies, and law enforcement to help our clients avoid and minimize criminal charges and civil fines.
