A prominent Washington defense attorney representing a client in the Justice Department’s recent Foreign Corrupt Practices Act sting case will join BuckleySandler LLP as a partner.
David Krakoff, former co-leader of white collar litigation practice at Mayer Brown LLP, represents defendant John Mushriqui in the sting case — the largest single prosecution of individuals in the law’s history.
Krakoff is well known in FCPA circles and has played a key role in the case’s litigation. He spoke on behalf of all the defense lawyers in the case at a motions hearing in Washington’s U.S. District Court last Thursday.
Krakoff has represented individuals and corporate clients, focusing on FCPA compliance and litigation.
His new firm, BuckleySandler LLP, employs more than 90 lawyers in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New York City and focuses primarily on financial and commercial law.
