Seeking Justice For The Firm’s Clients
Justice Delayed Is Not Just
Courtroom scenes of financial crimes are often in the news, depicting criminals who go to jail and companies that enter into huge civil settlements. However, after the gavel goes down and a civil judgment or criminal restitution order is entered, the truth is that many victims of financial crimes are never made whole. All too often, judgments and restitution orders go uncollected.
For the past 25 years, attorney Mark Yost has been prosecuting fraud and other white-collar crimes for the United States government. Now, he brings his in-depth experience investigating financial crimes to compensate fraud victims by recovering assets hidden by criminals and dishonest civil defendants.
Credentials That Matter
Mark developed a passion for tracing assets during a decade as a federal prosecutor for the Tax and Criminal Divisions of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). As an Enforcement Attorney at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for fifteen years, he worked closely with Whistleblowers in securities fraud cases, applying his passion for tracing money to locate misappropriated assets, recover ill-gotten gains and trace corporate bribe money.
Over the past twenty-five years, Mark has followed the money trail wherever it led – whether in the United States or offshore to shell corporations with bank accounts in financial secrecy jurisdictions, like the Cayman Islands or the British Virgin Islands.
Mark is a Certified Fraud Examiner (certified by the ACFE) and a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (certified by the ACAMS).
Tracing and recovering assets can be complicated and challenging, particularly if the money is hidden in a financial secrecy jurisdiction. If you hold a judgment entered by a court, whether it was entered in a civil or criminal case, Mark will use his experience, skills, and contacts to enforce your judgment and make you financially whole.
Effective and Secure Representation for Whistleblowers
Corporate employees trying to right wrongs often put their careers in jeopardy. Mark understands the importance of what they do and the importance of confidentiality when they do it.
Mark also understands that the Whistleblower programs at various agencies can be confusing and complicated. Doing the right thing by reporting corporate crimes can be financially rewarding, but safely navigating the process while providing timely, accurate reporting is critical.
Mark has relied upon Whistleblowers as a DOJ prosecutor and an SEC enforcement attorney, and he uses that experience now to help Whistleblowers navigate the complexities of government Whistleblower programs while strictly preserving their confidentiality.
