WASHINGTON, D.C., November 9, 2021 — Global Investigation Review (GIR) — the world’s leading destination for international investigations news and analysis — unveiled its 2021 list of the top global investigations practices and named Cozen O’Connor’s White Collar Defense & Investigations  practice group to its GIR 100 list for the sixth year in a row. GIR 100 is an annual guide to the world’s best firms to turn to in the lifecycle of an international investigation. The list is a result of a painstaking research process, which sees the GIR editorial team review countless pages of confidential information supplied by firms and practices vying for inclusion, and it includes best-performing cross-border investigations practices and specialist firms from across the world. The GIR calls the White Collar Defense & Investigations group “a popular choice for individuals in politically sensitive cases,” and in its profile it says, among other things, “the firm’s areas of expertise include cross-border anti-corruption, antitrust, export control and sanction violations, False Claims Act matters and health care fraud. Although Cozen's white-collar practitioners are primarily located in the U.S. East Coast, several of its partners carry out investigations overseas including in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.”

Cozen O’Connor’s White Collar Defense & Investigations group represents individuals, public and private companies, corporate boards, and special committees in the full range of white collar issues. The group works with clients to conduct internal investigations, implement compliance solutions, and navigate government investigations. The practice has a carefully assembled group of attorneys with decades of experience on both the prosecutorial and defense sides, including a former federal public defender and several former U.S. federal and state prosecutors and officials, many who have served within the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other key investigative and prosecutorial arms of the government.
