Minneapolis Lawyers For White Collar Crime Defense

In this era of dramatically increased regulation and intensified efforts to expose corporate and governmental wrongdoing, our law firm has earned a national reputation for excellence in white collar defense. While we have trial and appellate experience spanning hundreds of complex cases, many of our foremost successes have involved staving off indictments to preserve our clients' reputations and futures.

Trusted By Public Figures, Business Leaders And Other Attorneys Since 1991

The legal team at Kelley, Wolter & Scott, P.A., is led by three principal attorneys with many decades of experience in high-profile litigation and appeals. We have successfully defended U.S. senators accused of ethics violations and also represented public officials at the Minnesota state level. Other lawyers know us for our work in prominent cases involving Minnesota companies and business owners, including Douglas A. Kelley's service as the court-appointed receiver and trustee in the wake of the state's largest-ever Ponzi scheme.

Corporations, privately held companies, executives and professionals turn to our firm for services such as:

  • Counsel throughout all phases of government investigations into alleged financial, regulatory and ethical violations — with emphasis on avoiding prosecution whenever possible
  • Proactive, comprehensive defense against allegations of self-dealing, health care fraud, mail or wire fraud, criminal tax fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and various other felony charges in federal court
  • Rigorous case building and strategic representation in full view of client goals that often include minimizing publicity as well as criminal consequences and civil penalties
  • Professional license defense, including representation in administrative suspension and debarment proceedings

When a government investigation, internal investigation or criminal allegations first come to light, it is critical to consult highly experienced defense counsel. Our Minneapolis-based white collar crime attorneys include former federal and state-level prosecutors. Lawyers and investigators associated with the firm have experience within federal government agencies. Simply stated, we bring invaluable insight and directly relevant qualifications to every case.

Although our accomplishments stand up to those of much larger firms, we have chosen to stay lean and focused. We collaborate extremely well with other attorneys, and our reputations serve clients well in administrative, civil and criminal proceedings.
