      As a US based law firm, we needed a Nigerian Attorney to help us protect our client's intellectual property. A disgruntled former employee in Nigeria was holding himself out as our client's partner and entering into contracts with people. We searched online and partnered with Vassalcrest Attorneys. Their distinctive way of handling this case was all we needed in a Nigerian legal partner.

        White Collar Crime. What is it ?

         NOT ALL LAWYERS ARE EXPERIENCED IN WHITE COLLAR CRIME CASES.

        White collar crime is a non-violent offense committed by individuals, typically in business or government, for financial gain. Unlike traditional street crimes, such as theft or assault, white collar crimes often involve complex schemes or frauds that require a level of sophistication to pull off successfully.

        Examples of white collar crime include insider trading, embezzlement, money laundering, cybercrime, bribery, and securities fraud. These crimes are typically committed by individuals in positions of power, such as executives, politicians, or government officials, who use their influence or access to confidential information to commit their crimes.

        One of the main characteristics of white collar crime is the significant financial impact it can have on victims. For example, a single instance of embezzlement can result in millions of dollars in losses for a company or organization. Additionally, white collar crimes often have a ripple effect that can harm innocent parties, such as employees who lose their jobs due to corporate fraud or investors who lose their savings due to securities fraud.

        Another characteristic of white collar crime is the length of time it can take to discover and prosecute. Unlike traditional street crimes, which are often discovered and resolved quickly, white collar crimes can go undetected for years, allowing the offender to continue to benefit financially. Additionally, prosecuting white collar crimes can be difficult and time-consuming due to the complexity of the schemes involved and the need for extensive evidence.

        Overall, white collar crime poses a significant threat to the economy and society as a whole. It is a complex issue that requires specialized expertise to investigate and prosecute successfully. As a result, it is essential to work with an experienced white collar crime attorney who can provide the necessary guidance and support to protect your interests.

        At Vassalcrest Attorneys, we have extensive experience in handling white collar crime cases, including investigations, regulatory or enforcement actions, and auditor-led inquiries into suspected financial misconduct. 

        If you are facing allegations of white collar crime or suspect that you may have been a victim of fraud, we are here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can support you through this challenging times.
