While many corporations take legal compliance seriously, others engage in conduct that violates the public trust. Through influence peddling, campaign contributions, lobbying, and job offers to highly placed regulators, many corporations seek to undermine enforcement so as to mitigate punishment or escape scrutiny altogether. Moreover, the increasing privatization of public services and the reliance of government on private contractors weakens the ability of the public to properly ensure that the government is responsible to the constituency that it is expected to serve. Many of the largest, richest, and most powerful corruptors of government are corporations. There can never be government accountability without widespread corporate accountability.
We investigate and substantiate corporate whistleblower allegations having to do with tax evasion, government regulatory violations, and substantial public harm and design campaigns to address corporate corruption. In addition to representing corporate whistleblowers and developing legislation to protect them, we take legal action to recover fraud against the government, challenge tax evasion, and remedy dishonest corporate behavior against shareholders, workers, and consumers.
