White Collar Criminal Defense

Defense of corporations and their officers accused of financial improprieties including tax violations, transactional misfeasance, mortgage and health care fraud, insider trading, fraudulent SEC and other regulatory filings, corporate kickbacks and obstruction of justice is the core of our practice. Using the best forensic tools, investigators and experts in the industry, Mr. Budreau routinely represents corporate officers and their companies in the health care, banking, real estate and financial industries. The following are examples of such clients Mr. Budreau has represented in federal court:

  • Corporate president accused of federal conspiracy and laundering criminal proceeds. Acquitted after jury trial.
  • Company president on appeal in multi-million dollar stock fraud scheme
  • Multiple mortgage brokers accused of wire fraud and straw buyer schemes
  • Corporate officer in $50 million dollar tax fraud and money laundering scheme
  • Demonstrated to federal prosecutors that over one million dollars in seized assets were not connected to business owner's money laundering offenses. Assets returned.
  • Convinced federal court to find grand jury subpoena of client's computer password coercive. This led to court's decision that evidence found on computer vis-a-vis 1B1.8 proffer could not be used to increase client's sentence despite non mandatory naure of guidelines. Client's sentence cut by over half as a result.
