CO-CHAIR, WHITE COLLAR DEFENSE & INVESTIGATIONS PRACTICE GROUP
Bill represents corporations, organizations, government entities, and individuals in high-stakes, high-profile matters in federal and state courts and before regulatory agencies and Congress.
His practice focuses on government enforcement actions and his clients’ response to and interactions with them. The specific subject of the actions can vary—as different administrations in the United States and jurisdictions abroad prioritize different types of enforcement—but include the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), criminal antitrust, government program fraud, public corruption, anti-money laundering, and other white collar crime issues.
Bill also represents and advises a broad range of clients, including corporate boards, audit committees, and management, on business and operational issues such as acquisitions, financings, risk evaluation and mitigation, and internal investigations.
Throughout his career, Bill has tried more than 70 jury cases to verdict, has had 15 appellate arguments, and has conducted hundreds of grand jury and motions proceedings. He has had matters in 37 U.S. states and more than 30 countries. His experience gives him insight into the nuances and developments in enforcement approaches and actions around the globe.
Prior to joining private practice, Bill served as the assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia (1989–1996).
