About KaiserDillon PLLC

KaiserDillon PLLC has extensive experience representing individuals and companies in high stakes white-collar criminal matters, government investigations, and civil fraud enforcement cases.

Our firm has been involved in some of the most important, high-profile investigations of recent years. We represented multiple clients involved in Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, for example, as well as related Congressional oversight inquiries. While federal government authorities are involved in most of our engagements, KaiserDillon also works with clients caught in sensitive allegations of potential wrongdoing with a political dimension at the local and state levels.

We frequently represent executives, employees, or groups of employees, in matters involving corporate conduct – whether as part of an internal investigation or audit, or where the company’s activities have drawn attention from the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, or any of the various Offices of Inspector General.  We have experience with cross-border investigations and are sensitive to the unique issues that arise when coordinating with counsel in other jurisdictions.  Regardless of the particular circumstances, we advise our clients on their best options for minimizing, resolving, or contesting their legal exposure.

KaiserDillon has been recognized for its work in Chambers USA, Legal 500, and Best Lawyers.
