Practice Areas

KANE+KIMBALL LLP specializes in white collar criminal and civil defense. The foundation of our practice is the defense of individuals who are under investigation by government authorities or who have already been charged with federal or state offenses. We are highly experienced in representing clients confronted with simultaneous criminal, civil, and regulatory investigations by the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the State Bar of California, and other agencies. While KANE+KIMBALL LLP has a strong track record for negotiating favorable resolutions with government attorneys at the grand jury or pre-charging stage of an investigation, we are also formidable trial lawyers with the savvy and expertise necessary to defend cases to a jury whenever litigation is the appropriate strategy for our clients.
