Palm Harbor White Collar Attorney

In today’s business environment, business and crime often intersect. A legitimate business decision should not result in a criminal indictment. That’s why we at the Law Office of Robert Eckard make it our mission to help clients faced with white collar crimes.

 

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are illegal acts characterized by deception and fraud committed by professionals, like businessmen and government officials or employees. The main elements of white collar crimes are the deceit and concealment involved in pulling it off.

There should also be a violation of trust involved but without the presence of threat or physical violence.

There are many examples of white collar crime. It could be an office secretary diverting company funds into their private accounts, or it could be a local government official making under-the-table deals to get more money out of an office transaction. It can also be as straightforward as taking a bribe, such as money or property, in exchange for services.

Here’s a list of white collar crimes:

  • Crimes of Theft – bankruptcy and insurance fraud, money laundering, identity theft, blackmail, medical crimes, embezzlement, extortion, forgery, Ponzi schemes, accounting, etc.
  • Crimes Against Public Administration – bribery, official misconduct, obstruction of justice, perjury.
  • Regulatory Offenses – unfair trade practices, tax evasion, campaign and election-related crime, environmental, labor, and manufacturing violations.

White Collar Crime Punishment

White collar crime punishments can vary depending on the severity of the crime. This may include fines and probation, and/or may even include jail sentences.

Typically, victims of white collar crimes can be awarded restitution or compensation for losses incurred because of the crime.
