Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Within: Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP’s New York-based team comprises ‘white-collar legends and elite trial luminaries’ that are ‘without peer’. The firm is noted for its ability to handle individual and corporate representations in almost every major regulated industry. The group acted for JPMorgan Chase in a major US government FCPA investigation into hiring practices in its Chinese office, averting criminal charges. The firm is also representing Citigroup in a variety of investigatory matters before the DOJ, including in a global AML probe. In a non-institutional mandate, it is acting as lead counsel to 21st Century Fox on multiple investigations concerning allegations of sexual harassment against the former CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, and the presenter, Bill O’Reilly. The group also acts for a variety of senior executives in FCPA, insider trading and fraud matters, in addition to representations before major congressional inquiries. Key practitioners include Lorin Reisner, who co-chairs the white-collar and regulatory defense practice; Theodore Wells, who is ‘an unparalleled legal expert’; Daniel Kramer; and Roberto Gonzalez, who specializes in AML and sanctions matters. Firm chairman Brad Karp is also highly regarded.
