Josh Sharp is a Boston-based partner in Nixon Peabody’s Government Investigations & White Collar Defense practice group. He represents corporations and individuals in government investigations, regulatory inquiries, and complex civil and criminal litigation.

What do you focus on?

I assist clients with internal investigations, regulatory inquiries, grand jury matters, and criminal defense. I also litigate civil matters in state and federal courts.

Financial Institutions Investigations

I represent banks and broker-dealers in investigations by the Department of Justice, the SEC, FinCEN, and FINRA. I have substantial experience with the Bank Secrecy Act and FinCEN’s anti-money laundering regulations.

Health Care, Life Sciences and False Claims Act Litigation

I represent life sciences companies and health care providers in both internal matters and Department of Justice investigations. I have significant experience with the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback statute and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Corporate Immigration Investigations

I represent clients in corporate immigration investigations by the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and State. I have been involved in some of the most significant investigations in this space.

Civil Litigation

In addition to my investigations work, I regularly represent clients in state and federal courts in business litigation matters. I recently obtained dismissal with prejudice of a $3 billion RICO lawsuit filed in the District of Massachusetts.
