Navigating Complex Legal Issues With Precision
Stumphauzer & Sloman is a firm of aggressive and experienced advocates focusing on white collar criminal defense, government regulatory enforcement matters, internal investigations, complex civil litigation, and whistleblower representation. Ryan Stumphauzer and Jeff Sloman are former federal prosecutors with extensive experience as trial attorneys. They have each directed numerous complex cases from grand jury investigation through jury trial. Whether assisting a whistleblower in reporting fraud and collecting a reward, advising a corporation managing an allegation of wrongdoing, defending an executive accused of fraud, or recovering assets on behalf of fraud victims, our attorneys can help.
In many scenarios, our goal is to help our clients avoid the stress and expense of a conflict. We do so by helping our clients minimize the risk of government scrutiny before an investigation ripens into a charged case. Our attorneys work closely with clients who have discovered indicia of corporate misconduct, and help them quarantine and eliminate the issue before its adverse consequences grow. We customize an action plan, conduct a thorough internal investigation to determine the problem areas, and design a regulatory compliance program. Additionally, we work with individual and corporate clients who have already become the subject of a state or federal investigation, with a view to avoiding a sanction or prosecution. We advise our clients not to wait for the government to make a move. Instead, we take the offensive and move the case in the direction that is best for our client.
At Stumphauzer & Sloman our strength lies in our experience. Our attorneys have diverse and distinguished backgrounds, including serving as federal prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. As former federal government lawyers, our lawyers were involved in a wide scope of cases and enforcement actions, ranging from securities, banking, and health care fraud, to tax offenses, money laundering, and other serious white collar and business crimes.
Our in-depth knowledge provides a distinct advantage when dealing with government enforcement proceedings. The federal defense attorneys at our Miami-based firm have a unique understanding of how government agencies investigate and prosecute serious civil and criminal cases. This insider’s view allows our firm to quickly assess a case, identify risks, and present clients with strategic options and solutions. In addition to our unique insight into the federal government’s inner-workings, we have a keen understanding of our clients’ specialized industries, including securities, health care, and banking. Put simply, we speak your language, understand your unique competitive challenges, and have a strong command of the applicable regulatory landscape.
