Dewey’s Ex-Chair Hires White Collar Defense Lawyer
With the law firm he managed continuing in crisis, and with prosecutors apparently investigating him for alleged financial wrongdoing, Steven Davis, the former chair of Dewey & LeBoeuf, has hired a white collar criminal defense lawyer.
Davis has retained Barry A. Bohrer, a principal in leading white collar defense law firm Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason, Anello & Bohrer, P.C.
Bohrer (pictured) has extensive litigation experience handling white collar criminal and complex civil matters in federal and state courts for individual and corporate clients. He has defended clients, including major corporations, financial institutions, political figures, corporate executives and individuals, professionals, and prominent law firms, in a wide variety of high-profile and complex cases, jury trials, regulatory actions, and investigations.
Bohrer represents clients in matters pertaining to securities and commodities litigation and regulatory enforcement; other forms of financial fraud; antitrust litigation; and allegations of environmental offenses. He represents clients in parallel enforcement proceedings involving the United States Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. He also conducts corporate internal investigations and counsels individuals involved in them. In his appellate practice, he has won appeals at all levels of the federal and state court systems throughout the nation, and is retained in high-stakes appellate cases where he is brought in by other legal teams for the appeals.
Bohrer received a B.A. from Duke University and a J.D. from New York University School of Law. From 1982 to 1985, he was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he served as both Chief Appellate Attorney and Chief of the Major Crimes Unit. He has held the position of Adjunct Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law, where he taught Trial Advocacy.
