Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC

565 Fifth Avenue

For over 40 years, Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC has been at the forefront of advising both companies and individuals clients on complex white-collar and regulatory matters and sophisticated business disputes. As a litigation boutique, we are best known for our unparalleled trial experience and our expertise in white-collar defence, securities enforcement, and regulatory matters. Equally important is the sophisticated civil litigation we do for financial institutions, other business entities, and their senior executives. Our size and expertise allows us the flexibility to provide the highest-quality legal services at competitive rates.

We are renowned for our accomplishments litigating cases at all levels of the federal and state courts, in arbitrations, and before government agencies, regulatory organisations, and other tribunals. More than a quarter of the firm’s partners are Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a prestigious organisation that was created to recognise excellence in trial lawyers. We regularly represent companies and individuals in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act inquiries and investigations by the US Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and foreign regulators and prosecutors. We also are well known for our appellate practice and regularly handle complex civil and criminal appeals before federal and state courts throughout the nation. Our expertise as litigators and the respect it has earned our firm, enable us to negotiate effectively with regulators, prosecutors, and adversaries on behalf of our clients.

We have persuaded the government not to indict identified grand jury targets, thereby helping individuals and corporations avoid criminal charges altogether. When a client has been indicted, because of our experience, reputation as skilled trial lawyers and advocates, and thorough hard work, we often are able to obtain favourable pretrial dispositions. Similarly, in civil disputes, our ability and willingness to try high-stakes cases often helps us achieve advantageous settlements without trial. Our lawyers also provide litigation-avoidance advice, FCPA guidance, securities law-related analysis, and other confidential legal counselling, often in highly sensitive contexts.

Institutional clients frequently retain us to conduct sensitive internal investigations aimed at uncovering or resolving allegations of officer, director, trustee, or employee misconduct, both in the US and globally. Our lawyers have led court-appointed independent monitorships, acted as independent examiners for US Department of Justice initiatives, and have been appointed to government-approved positions as corporate integrity counsel. 

Our lawyers are thought leaders who have been recognised for their trial skills by professional organisations, lecture frequently on matters relating to criminal and regulatory issues, and regularly contribute to various well-known publications.
