Jones Day named among "Practice Groups of the Year" in White Collar by Law360
The Firm's Investigations & White Collar Defense Practice was recognized among Law360's White Collar "Practice Groups of the Year." Now in its 14th year, the Law360 awards "honor the law firms behind the litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year."
Jones Day is regularly called on by clients to assist with significant internal and government investigations in the United States and across national boundaries. For example, the Firm defended Indivior Inc. in a criminal case brought by the DOJ in Virginia relating to the marketing of one of the company's products. Jones Day obtained a complete dismissal of the government's 28 count indictment against Indivior and a favorable resolution for a subsidiary entity. The Firm also represents the former president of a technology company who was indicted by the DOJ and charged by the SEC for his alleged role in a scheme to bribe officials in India. The case has made law in several areas, including how the attorney-client privilege applies to internal investigations after a self-disclosure to the DOJ, the DOJ's disclosure obligations to defendants in criminal cases, the use of Rule 17 subpoenas to obtain internal investigation materials, and various aspects of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
The Firm's white-collar lawyers also regularly team with those in the Issues & Appeals Practice to defend clients against allegations of fraud and corruption. For example, Jones Day obtained a unanimous Supreme Court decision overturning the criminal conviction of Joseph Percoco, a former top aide and campaign manager for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and the Firm was recently retained by New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez to assist in his defense against criminal charges brought by DOJ in New York.
