Litigation: White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations in New York Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

Chambers USA includes dedicated coverage of New York’s top-rated white-collar criminal defense attorneys within its New York Litigation: White-Collar Crime and Government Investigations table. Market-leading lawyers ranging from Star-ranked practitioners to Up-and-Coming young partners are recognized for their expert defense of individuals and companies facing external investigations, criminal trials and enforcement proceedings. Market giants such as Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP come recommended for their ability to handle domestic and cross-border business defense mandates spanning a range of industries. Standout boutiques are separately highlighted in the Specialist Firms table, where preeminent firms such as Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello P.C. and Lankler Siffert & Wohl LLP can be found.

Chambers and Partners recognizes that white-collar defense reaches into many industries and comprises many strands of focus, and some of these are separately considered within other tables such as the standalone Nationwide FCPA table and Nationwide Securities Regulation (Advisory and Enforcement) tables. Firms with preeminent internal and external corporate investigations practices are additionally highlighted within the Nationwide Corporate Crime table, which complements the state coverage. Manhattan’s leading civil litigators can be found in our New York Litigation: General Commercial and Securities tables.
