Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph, PL
Andrew S. Ittleman is a Founder and Partner of Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph, PL. He concentrates his practice in the areas of White Collar Criminal Defense, Anti-Money Laundering compliance, and Food and Drug Law. Mr. Ittleman litigates extensively against the United States government in civil and criminal matters.
Mr. Ittleman’s practice is primarily devoted to the representation of regulated entities in complex disputes with the United States government. Virtually all of Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph, PL’s clients are regulated by the federal government in some way, and Mr. Ittleman focuses his work on those clients which have entered into a dispute with the government regarding whether, and if so how, certain laws or regulations should apply. These disputes can take many forms. In some cases, the government will send correspondence to a regulated business advising the business that it has failed in some material way to comply with federal law. In many of these cases, such as those which begin with Cease and Desist Letters issued by state banking regulators and Warning Letters issued by FDA, the issuing agency posts the correspondence on the World Wide Web, and Mr. Ittleman is thus asked to respond with the utmost sensitivity and urgency. In other cases, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or the Department of Justice may announce itself to a regulated entity by issuing a Civil Investigative Demand (CID) or other formal demand for information, and in these cases Mr. Ittleman is requested by his clients to determine what, exactly, is being investigated and why, and to work with the government in limiting the scope of the investigation so that it does not unduly burden the client’s business.
