White collar crime continues to make headlines. But many cases that may not make the headlines are just as important to you and your clients.

In White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses, Otto G. Obermaier and Robert G. Morvillo have gathered a prestigious group of authors to counsel you on: criminal tax cases; securities fraud; RICO; mail and wire fraud; banking crimes; criminal antitrust actions; bribery and extortion; conspiracy; entrapment and government overreaching; government contract fraud; grand jury practice; perjury and false declarations; and general principles governing the criminal liability of corporations, their employees and officers.

White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses also features a discussion of computer crime, including provisions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the creation of Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Squads designed to combat copyright theft, computer fraud and hacking. There is also valuable information on forfeiture; the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; and the Supreme Court's interpretation of the standard of “gross proportionality” as it applies to violations of the Eighth Amendment's “excessive fines” clause
