Aggressive Defense for the Accused in Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Prairieville, Assumption Parish, Zachary, LA & Beyond
Corporate crimes are a type of white-collar criminal offense in which individuals commit illegal acts for the benefit of their employers. Corporate crimes can also be committed to corporations themselves, such as when large companies violate environmental laws. As opposed to other types of white-collar crimes, generally known as occupational crimes, these offenses are not typically committed for personal gain; in many cases, alleged offenders are not even aware that they have engaged in illegal activity.
Regardless, the penalties for corporate crimes are harsh. If you are under investigation or if someone you care about has been arrested for or charged with a corporate crime, you need to speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney right away.
Examples of Corporate Crimes
If you are facing charges for any of the following offenses, you are looking at corporate crime charges:
- Making false claims/false advertising
- Insider trading
- Corporate tax evasion/tax fraud
- Manipulation of sales
- Antitrust violations
- Violation of state or federal environmental law
- Sanctions violations
- Failure to report safety defects in a manufactured product
- Wage theft and other employment law violations
The penalties for these and other corporate crimes are severe and may include thousands of dollars in fines for each alleged offense, a lengthy prison sentence, and more. A conviction will also likely bring about professional and personal consequences, affecting everything from your reputation to your career and employment to your ability to secure housing or future loans.
