What Do You Focus On?
I focus my practice on three primary areas.
Government Investigations, Prosecutions and Regulatory Matters
I leverage my nearly twelve years of experience as a federal prosecutor and deputy city attorney to represent entities and individuals under investigation by federal, state and local agencies. I’ve helped clients in matters brought by the criminal divisions of the Northern, Central, and Southern District of California U.S. Attorney’s offices, as well as from the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office’s Economic Crimes Unit, the District of Alaska U.S. Attorney’s Office, the California Department of Justice, the California Department of Health Care Services and the Tax Division of the Central District U.S. Attorney’s Office. I’ve also served clients facing matters brought by federal agencies including the SEC, FBI, FAA, Customs, DHS, HHS, TSA, the Federal Maritime Commission and the IRS. In addition, I assist clients through internal investigations and compliance with the requirements attached to conducting business on a global scale, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
I’ve personally handled over 25 jury trials and dozens of arbitrations and other contested court proceedings. I leverage this experience to help clients involved in commercial litigation regarding alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), breach of contract, alleged violations of the California wiretapping statute, commercial fraud claims and alleged violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
Data Security and Privacy
I use my training and experience as a former federal prosecutor and as a managing director of a digital risk management and computer forensics firm to help clients assess and improve their data security and compliance with data privacy laws.
