Defending Researchers And Scientists Accused Of Crimes

More than ever, scientists and researchers are put under the microscope by federal investigators for alleged misconduct or fraud. Allegations of fraud, let alone a criminal conviction, can severely damage your professional reputation and future. If you were accused of a crime, you need an attorney who will defend your freedom and reputation.

Attorney Kevin Luibrand is a knowledgeable defense attorney who has defended the rights of clients for more than 35 years. He is also one of the few attorneys who has experienced defending researchers and scientists across New York state. As your representation, he will thoroughly investigate the accusations against you and then create a strong defense that protects your rights and character. If you are in the New York Capital Region, you can contact our Latham office by calling 518-362-5759.

Federal Crimes And Scientific Research

While most accusations of misconduct or fraud are handled by the Office of Research Integrity (ORI), the Department of Justice (DOJ) is charging more scientists, researchers and administrators with criminal charges. The DOJ can bring charges against researchers and scientists under the False Claims Act (FCA). This process allows the DOJ to hold researchers and academic institutions accountable for federal grants used in alleged scientific misconduct. Scientists who are accused of misconduct may also have their funding cut off, their labs shut down and an arduous investigation process.

Attorney Kevin Luibrand will do everything in his power to ensure that representatives from the ORI and DOJ respect your civil rights and legal procedures. He works with independent subject matter experts to review the evidence and create a personalized defense. He also defends the rights of academics who are facing disciplinary actions.
