Miami Corporate Business Crime Attorney

Understanding Corporate Business Crime

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). If you are presently under investigation for a corporate crime or white collar crime, it is highly suggested that you seek the advice of a Miami criminal defense lawyer immediately.

How is corporate crime different from 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.

Miami Criminal Defense for Corporate Professionals

The common misconception about corporate business crime is that the motivation is financial. Although this is often the case, there are exceptions to the rule. Corporate crime does have the propensity to harm the general public as in toxic waste dumping, or making false claims about a dangerous drug by a pharmaceutical giant. If you are presently under investigation for a corporate business crime, contact Hager & Schwartz, P.A. as soon as possible. You could be facing serious criminal consequences and you wouldn't want to say anything that could be used against you in court.
