Colin T. Missett

Colin Missett is a member of the Government Investigations & White Collar Defense practice group.

What do you focus on?

My practice focuses on representations in connection with government investigations and complex litigation. I have assisted clients with criminal, civil and regulatory investigations involving various enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and various state attorney general offices. I also have represented financial institutions, multi-national companies and individuals in complex civil litigation. My investigation and litigation experience encompasses a variety of subject matters including residential mortgage backed securities, insider trading, derivatives trading, Ponzi schemes, misappropriation of trade secrets and the False Claims Act. I also maintain an active pro bono practice.

What do you see on the horizon?

Although the Department of Justice has revised certain corporate enforcement policies regarding individual accountability in recent years, the prosecution of culpable individuals in corporate investigations remains a top priority for the Department and other federal enforcement agencies.
