The Economic Espionage Act of 1996 makes it a federal crime to misappropriate intellectual property and trade secrets. U.S. attorneys throughout the country aggressively prosecute such cases, seeking convictions and long prison sentences. If you are implicated in the theft of intellectual property, you should speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

I conduct a tenacious defense in every case, working hard to obtain the best possible outcome in every case.

Defense Of Industrial Espionage Charges
In defending you, I will undertake a comprehensive investigation of all aspects of your case. When it can support the legal effort, I can employ the services of expert witnesses and professionals with the aim of undermining the prosecutor’s case.
Because of the economic importance of such cases, conviction on corporate espionage charges often results in very long prison sentences and for this reason, it often makes sense to vigorously defend such charges at trial. I have handled numerous federal criminal cases, and am noted for my trial advocacy skills and strong courtroom presence. As your lawyer, I will do everything I can to obtain positive results for you.
The Economic Espionage Act empowers the federal government to seek the forfeiture of all assets used in the theft of intellectual property and trade secrets, as well as the proceeds of that theft. If you are a business owner, that means that your business and personal property could be seized.
