White Collar and other Criminal Defense

When clients are facing criminal investigations or prosecutions, attorneys at Whipple Azzarello bring a wealth of defense and prosecutorial experience to bear. Widely respected by Judges and Prosecutors alike for their tenacity and dedication to their clients, our attorneys have both the substantive knowledge and extensive experience to achieve the best possible outcome in and out of the courtroom.

Corporate Internal and Regulatory Investigations

For company principals, boards of directors, or in-house corporate counsel, we are eminently qualified to assist with a vast array of issues stemming from corporate governance and regulatory standards. The firm is poised to offer key insights and assistance in navigating the complexities surrounding corporate governance and regulatory investigations. These include but are not limited to: financial disclosure, accounting inquiries, contract administration, and internal audits and controls. John Azzarello’s prior experience as Deputy Counsel to the 9/11 Commission makes this firm uniquely qualified to conduct such investigations.

Subpoena Compliance

When corporations and individuals are served with subpoenas that involve a large volume of documentary evidence, often in electronic format, Whipple Azzarello, LLC brings our extensive experience to support those clients. We are well equipped to help our clients comply with subpoena requests, no matter the scope. While a small firm, we utilize cost-effective, cutting edge technological solutions to bring document management projects of any size well within our control.
