Albany White Collar Crime Lawyers
Providing Defense for White Collar Crime Cases in New York
Attempting to specifically classify white collar crimes can be a challenging task, simply because there are so many distinct categories. In general, however, this term is used to broadly characterize offenses involving monetary transactions and financial operations in business, where some form of misrepresentation, corruption, or theft has taken place.
Because these charges tend to involve large amounts of money, or a wide scale of pervasiveness in multiple locations, investigators and prosecutors are especially eager to win in these cases, which end up being very lucrative on their end.
