Lead Counsel for the Primary Target of Federal Grand Jury Investigation Against National Law Firm for Securities Fraud


  • Was lead counsel for the primary target of a year-long federal Grand Jury investigation against national law firm for securities fraud, stemming from law firm’s own actions in its representation of a securities broker; defended senior partner who was main target, along with several associates and the law firm itself; despite Justice Department’s announced decision that the law firm and partners were “definitely going to be indicted,” conducted exhaustive investigation demonstrating that firm and partner were not culpable, presenting results to DOJ and arguing that indictment was untenable and inconsistent with Main Justice guidelines.
 
Result: DOJ declination letter clearing the law firm and all individual targets.
