Who's Who Legal Investigations: Lawyers

Nicolas Bourtin is the managing partner of Sullivan & Cromwell’s criminal defence and investigations group and the co-head of the firm’s FCPA and anti-corruption practice. He represents individuals, global corporations and financial institutions in a broad variety of matters involving white-collar crime and internal investigations, class action defence, and complex civil litigation. He has particular expertise in defending against cross-border criminal and regulatory investigations involving the FCPA, OFAC and trade sanctions, money laundering, antitrust, and accounting and other types of fraud.

Nicolas was educated at Columbia Law School (JD, 1996) and the University of Notre Dame (BA, 1993). He is recognised by Chambers USA, The Legal 500 and New York Super Lawyers as a leading practitioner in white-collar crime and government investigations, and as a “future star” in Euromoney’s Benchmark: America’s Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys. He contributes to thought leadership in this area, frequently speaking and writing on developments in the field, including in regular engagements at the Cambridge Forum on Financial Institutions Enforcement and the Practicing Law Institute.
