Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Within: Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Recent developments for New York-headquartered boutique Cohen & Gresser LLP include expanding practices in Paris and London, which better enable the group to represent clients in a variety of transatlantic investigations and criminal enforcement matters. Highlights for co-founding partner and practice head Mark Cohen included representing Vanja Baros, a former analyst for Och-Ziff Capital Management's European subsidiary, in a case brought by the SEC charging him with violations of the FCPA and Investment Adviser's Act; Cohen's work led to the dismissal of the entire complaint. Other key individuals include Jonathan Abernethy, S Gale Dick and Jason Brown.

Securities litigation - defense

Within: Securities litigation - defense

In New York, Cohen & Gresser LLP is a smaller firm that punches above its weight in securities litigation and one clients remarks that it is 'fully on a par with, if not better than, its opponents in other firms'. Mark Cohen and Lawrence Gresser lead the practice, in which the partners are 'true litigators, focused and thoughtful - no stone is left unturned'. Together with S Gale Dick, they secured the dismissal of claims against a UK-based former analyst in Och-Ziff Capital Management’s European subsidiary in an SEC matter alleging FCPA and Investment Advisers Act violations. Gresser and Stephen Sinaiko (of whom clients remark that 'he is an expert who is fully committed to, and engaged in, cases and deals with all the issues promptly; he is clever and extremely responsive - a good man to have on your side') represented Airplanes Limited and Airplanes US Trust matters relating to contingent liabilities. C Evan Stewart, Nathaniel Read and Daniel Tabak are also recommended.
