Miami White Collar Crime Lawyer

Under Investigation for a White Collar Criminal Case?

"White collar crime" is a term used to describe a criminal offense which occurs or is committed in a business environment. The majority of white collar crimes are non-violent theft crimes and involve theft by deception, or fraud. Managers, accountants, brokers and CEOs are the type of people that are often charged with white collar offenses, hence the term "white collar" to describe the crimes. White collar criminal cases are often highly complex and may be technical. Therefore, a Miami white collar crime attorney must be experienced specifically in these types of cases in order to provide the most effective representation.

No matter the specific white collar crime charges that you are facing, you will need a Miami white collar crime lawyer to protect your rights and help you avoid the negative consequences of a conviction. These may include imprisonment, heavy fines, restitution to the victim or victims, probation, the loss of professional licenses, and more. Your reputation may forever be ruined and you may have problems finding employment or carrying out future business ventures.

Types of Business Crimes

In criminology, corporate business crime occurs when crimes are committed either by a corporation, or by individuals that are acting on behalf of the corporation or other business entity. Corporate business crime can overlap with white collar crime, organized crime and state corporate crime. With corporate business crime, the majority of the individuals committing such crimes are white-collar professionals.

Corporate business crime can include environmental or health and safety violations or it can be financial as in insider trading. Since corporate crime is closely related to white collar crime, the Federal Bureau of Investigation goes on to define white collar crimes as, "those illegal acts which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application of threat or physical force or violence" (1989,3).

Difference Between Corporate Crime and White Collar Crime

What sets corporate business crime apart from other crimes is that it deals with the company as a whole. Corporate crimes benefit the investors or those individuals that are of high rank within the company itself. Although there is a fine line between corporate crime and white collar crime, the difference between the two is that white-collar crimes benefit the individual themselves, whereas corporate business crimes benefit the corporation.
