Will COVID-19 Prompt an Uptick in White-Collar Crime Investigations?
Author: Gregg H. HilzerDate: May 27, 2020
While the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic may be slowing the pace at which white-collar crimes are prosecuted, it would be unwise to expect that the pace of white-collar investigations will slow.

For a variety of reasons, many court operations, particularly criminal proceedings, have been subject to significant delay.
