COMPLEX CIVIL LITIGATION
Our team represents individual and corporate clients in a wide range of civil litigation. We are regularly engaged in matters involving business and partnership disputes, fraud, and civil rights litigation, among other civil actions. We also have significant experience investigating and litigating matters arising in Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.
Our team has led sensitive internal investigations, conducted discovery, and negotiated and successfully settled civil claims with public and private entities. In addition to representing clients in cross- border disputes, our team also represents plaintiffs in matters under the U.S. Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, the law that governs private civil claims against foreign nations. We also advise clients in matters before the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control, including de-listing and other proceedings.
CRIMINAL DEFENSE & INVESTIGATIONS
We work with individuals charged with sophisticated financial crimes like Medicare and Medicaid fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, and racketeering, in state and federal courts. The Firm also works with clients in select cases involving violent crimes. Our team also advises clients on matters involving Interpol.
Our lawyers handle every aspect of a criminal case from investigation and grand jury proceedings to plea negotiations, trial, and appeal. The Firm also represents clients in habeas corpus and post-conviction proceedings.
We act as lawyers of last resort, helping clients challenge significant money judgments, criminal convictions, and other adverse rulings. Our lawyers have argued precedent-setting cases involving matters of state and federal constitutional law, questions of jurisdiction, and the interpretation of state and federal laws. The Firm has appeared as counsel in state and federal courts of appeal, including the United States Supreme Court.
