United States: Dispute resolution

Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Within: Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Winston & Strawn LLP is noted for the 'effectiveness' of its team 'in dealing with all aspects of exceptionally complex matters'. The group's Washington DC office was greatly boosted in 2018 by the arrival of a team from Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP, including Abbe Lowell, Michael Loesch and Christopher Man, as well as Eric Meiring, who joined the group from the DOJ's Criminal Section. Lowell is noted for handling top-drawer individual representations; recently he has advised Jared Kushner on the congressional and special counsel inquiries into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 'Bright and sophisticated in her approach', New York-based Suzanne Jaffe Bloom defended AIG in an FCA case before the Second Circuit, successfully dismissing a qui tam relator's complaint with prejudice. On account of his 'honesty, integrity and perseverance', Thomas Buchanan is described by one client as 'an Abraham Lincoln of the modern era'; he represented Transport Logistics International in a DOJ FCPA investigation into a kickback scheme involving Russian officials, leading to a deferred prosecution agreement and a drastically reduced fine. Chicago's Dan Webb is representing Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Firtash in an FCPA case pending in the Northern District of Illinois. Other key practitioners include San Francisco's Robb Adkins and New York's Seth Farber, who jointly chair the group alongside Lowell. 'Top-of-the-market' Tom Melsheimer in Dallas and 'accessible' Steven Grimes (who splits his time between Chicago and Hong Kong) are also recommended.
