RICO cases are most often brought by criminal prosecutors, but sometimes form the basis for civil claims. The lawyers at Boersch Shapiro have experience in both areas. As prosecutors, we brought traditional RICO cases, such as Mafia murder, kidnapping, and drug cases. As private lawyers, we have defended criminal RICO cases, and we have brought and defended civil RICO claims. We understand the requirements of RICO, the hurdles the statute presents to both the government and private litigants, and understand the predicate acts that may form the basis for a RICO claim.
