The Ohio Chapter of the Women’s White Collar Defense Association is a statewide group of approximately thirty experienced white collar attorneys practicing in Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati.  We regularly represent corporations and individuals in criminal, civil, administrative, and appellate proceedings, as well as regularly advise clients on a wide range of corporate compliance issues. 

The practice areas of our members include healthcare fraud, securities fraud, tax fraud, bank fraud, public corruption, privacy and data security, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, False Claims Act, antitrust, complex commercial litigation, and internal investigations.  We represent clients before numerous federal and state enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

The Ohio Chapter is committed to enhancing business development opportunities for our members and mentoring younger women associates in the white collar field. We encourage active participation in social events and networking opportunities.
