Geoffrey Rosamond’s practice covers criminal defense and commercial litigation in federal and state court, where he represents corporations and individuals in a broad array of civil, criminal and regulatory proceedings and investigations. He has extensive experience handling complex commercial litigation involving issues including breach of contract, securities fraud, RICO, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference with contract and conversion.
Corporate and individual clients seek his assistance and experience as a former prosecutor with all aspects of the federal and state criminal process, from grand jury investigations through trial and responding to search warrants, subpoenas, and requests for information. Geoffrey regularly achieves favorable dispositions of regulatory and criminal cases brought by the federal and state governments through negotiation or trial.
He also counsels and assists corporations, whether in regulated or non-regulated industries, with the implementation of effective corporate compliance and ethics programs to prevent and detect unlawful conduct before it becomes a more serious problem. He often conducts internal investigations to mitigate the impact of detected misconduct and minimize the corporation’s exposure to civil and criminal punishment.
