Lawyers And Law Firms
The Firm has defended law firms in civil litigation and arbitrations and represented lawyers and law firms in federal and New York State criminal and regulatory matters and in internal investigations. In civil litigation, our engagements have included cases alleging malpractice and fee-related claims. In government and internal investigations, we have represented lawyers in matters ranging from criminal investigations of alleged fraud, anti-money laundering and U.S. sanctions violations, to fraud allegations in state court, and an investigation concerning potential violations of New York law relating to the State’s pension fund investments. We have also represented law firm partners and in-house lawyers as witnesses in federal criminal trials and before the Securities and Exchange Commission, and represented an international financial institution’s former general counsel in a court-appointed monitor’s investigation.
