Looking Forward

The COVID-19 pandemic caused systemic financial disruption, and created numerous vectors for bad actors to defraud private and public companies, and the government’s relief programs. We expect to see an increase in criminal investigations related to fraud/abuse of PPP loans and other government funds utilized to prop up the economy during the pandemic. Expect the Biden Administration to increase the use of criminal prosecutions and regulatory enforcement actions to target bad actors and entities in a more aggressive manner. We expect that the new administration will use white collar investigations and prosecutions as a means to regulate corporate and individual conduct in a way we have not witnessed over the last four years.
