Paul B. Hynes, Jr. maintains a robust litigation practice with a focus on white collar criminal defense, government investigations, and complex civil litigation.

Paul has represented clients in all stages of U.S. tax enforcement proceedings—including civil audits, criminal investigations, and civil and criminal litigation in federal courts. His clients have included individual and corporate taxpayers as well as firms and professionals whose advice is under attack.

Paul’s white collar criminal matters have included government investigations involving money laundering, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and other financial crimes. In these matters, Paul has drawn upon his experience with accounting principles and complex financial records.

Paul’s civil litigation work has included cases involving allegations of fraud, negligence, professional malpractice, and breach of fiduciary duty, as well as disputes between business partners. Paul also has represented clients in government investigations involving alleged civil violations of the False Claims Act. He has been instrumental in negotiating favorable settlements at the pre-litigation and pre-trial stages.
