SDM represents individuals and companies in high-profile white collar criminal defense matters, regulatory enforcement matters, and government investigations. We also provide advice to clients on compliance matters in a wide range of substantive areas. Our litigators include two former federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York and the Southern District of California who have significant federal criminal trial experience. Our clients, facing an aggressive regulatory environment, rely on our expertise, integrity and reputation to navigate the oftentimes complex investigation process, negotiate with government officials, and, above all else, to protect their interests. The best result for our clients—and our goal in each and every matter—is to avoid any prosecution. However, where our clients face criminal charges, we have the extensive trial and appellate experience necessary to mount a vigorous, aggressive, and strategic defense on their behalf.
