Our law firm handles complex criminal and civil litigation concentrating on federal and state white-collar criminal defense, and handling both trial and appellate work. Engagements have included matters involving allegations of congressional bribery, criminal and civil violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as “RICO”), commercial bribery, espionage, mortgage fraud, bank fraud, stock fraud, tax evasion, bid rigging, money laundering, drug trafficking, criminal and civil forfeiture, prescription-drug diversion by medical professionals, and international kidnaping. In addition, the firm has performed internal corporate investigations and due-diligence work in connection with corporate transactions.
Although the firm focuses on matters in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the District of New Jersey, the Second Circuit, and New York State trial and appellate courts, it has developed a national practice with recent criminal cases in the Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Circuits, the Southern and Central Districts of California, the District of Maryland, the Northern and Southern Districts of Georgia, the District of Puerto Rico, and the District of Connecticut, as well as administrative and regulatory matters in Albany, Buffalo, Denver, Dallas, Houston, and Washington, D.C.
Our firm’s civil work has included successfully defending a high-ranking government official in major civil-rights litigation that arose out of the mass arrests and detention of Muslim men in the immediate aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks. During the course of the litigation, the firm overcame a motion to quash by the New York Times in order to depose one of its reporters, and one of the cases included an interlocutory appeal to the United States Supreme Court. In addition, the firm has been actively involved in commercial litigation and investigations relating to the real-estate-market meltdown and related financial crisis of 2008.
The firm’s principal, Raymond Granger, is a former federal and state prosecutor and law clerk to a federal district judge. He has nearly 30 years of experience in the criminal- and civil-justice systems. He graduated in 1984 from Northwestern University School of Law, where he was a member of the Law Review, and in 1981 from the University of Virginia, where he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Government with honors and was a member of the Dean’s List for all semesters.
