Mr. Powell defended these entitites and individuals alone and in association with corporate co-counsel to defend their companies and individuals employed who are entitled to a company paid defense.

There are unique mens rea or intent considerations for corporate officers, directors and management.  Acts of company officers and employees can create criminal culpability for those corporate actors even though they had very little to "do with it."  A Ventura County criminal defense lawyer representing corporate officers and employees must understand that criminal culpability is a real danger when a company is only facilally looking at regulatory penalties.
