Boies, Schiller & Flexner Report - July 2015

Four SDNY Prosecutors Boost The Firm's White Collar Capability

After handling many of the federal government’s most prominent cases in recent years, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Matthew L. Schwartz, Peter M. Skinner, and John T. Zach from the Southern District of New York joined Boies, Schiller & Flexner in January to launch a Global Investigations and White Collar Defense practice, and bolster the Firm’s existing white collar and regulatory capabilities. They were joined in May by a fourth experienced Southern District of New York prosecutor, Randall Jackson. The four have worked together as federal prosecutors for nearly a decade on a wide range of national and international cases:  the prosecutions of SAC Capital Advisors on insider trading charges, JPMorgan Chase for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, numerous individuals associated with Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities (including the “Madoff Five”), and Javier Martin-Artajo and Julien Grout in connection with the “London Whale” trades. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP has pulled off one of the larger—and more unusual—coups of the New Year hiring season.” In an interview with Bloomberg News, Managing Partner Jonathan Schiller said, “Clients want to know the directions regulators are taking and want to know the issues before they become a problem.”
