Jeff Corey’s practices focuses on litigation and regulatory compliance.  Jeff defends clients in commercial business disputes, government enforcement actions, and white collar matters.  He also regularly helps clients conduct internal corporate investigations and respond to government inquiries.  Jeff’s work often involves representing clients in high stakes, sensitive matters, including contentious business disputes.  He regularly represents corporate clients in bet-the-company contract, tortious interference and business defamation cases.  

Jeff’s defense work also often includes advising companies in heavily regulated industries on advoiding compliance risks and litigation.  This risk avoidance work includes advising clients in the health care and environmental industries, including helping clients in these industries avoid risks crated by government enforcement actions.  This work includes  advising clients on liability under CERCLA, the Clean Water Act, environmental-related worker health and safety issues, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, and other legal regimes that can give rise to criminal and civil liabilities for actors in heavily-regulated industries.
