Walden Macht & Haran LLP is a New York-based boutique law firm focusing on white collar defense and investigations, complex commercial disputes, monitorships, and corporate compliance.
Our partners have held numerous senior positions in the public and the private sphere and have the breadth and depth of experience to advise in connection with the most pressing matters and to handle the most sensitive engagements. The partnership includes seven former federal prosecutors, many of whom held senior supervisory positions in the Department of Justice, a former counsel for national security at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a former general counsel of a NYSE listed multinational, a former chief compliance officer of a household name publicly traded company, and multiple former state prosecutors with supervisory experience.
We handle matters of every size and offer nimble and responsive counsel. We are known for our experience, integrity, and outstanding track record in both state and federal court.
WMH’s practice is led by formal federal prosecutors with exceptional track records in helping businesses successfully navigate sensitive investigations and high-stakes, white collar matters. The firm provides strategic counsel with proven success and credibility in an enforcement environment with higher risks of massive corporate penalties, risk of imprisonment for executives, and civil litigation.
WMH conducts complex internal investigations in the financial, real estate, health care, industrial, automotive, energy, retail, and entertainment sectors. The firm’s investigations have covered securities fraud, insider trading, foreign bribery, antitrust offenses, accounting violations, economic-sanctions violations.
Complex Commercial Litigation
The firm’s practice concentrates on complex media and entertainment, antitrust, fraud, and real estate litigation. Accomplished trial lawyers and former federal prosecutors translate their extensive experience in federal and New York state courts into winning legal strategies.
Corporate monitorships allow companies to satisfy legal obligations, remediate past mistakes and safeguard against future wrongdoing. WMH has a history of successfully fulfilling government-ordered monitor positions, combining strong industry relationships, deep subject matter knowledge, and a proven commitment to transparency.
WMH has substantial experience working with companies and high-level executives to resolve their most sensitive and challenging employee matters with minimal disruption to business. The team includes one of the only former federal prosecutors practicing employment law.
Good Government & Civil Rights
From leading the charge against school bullying to demanding safe and secure public housing for the disadvantaged, WMH is at the forefront of high-profile litigation to combat government abuses. We provide crucial counseling to community groups and religious institutions on their day-to-day dealings with government agencies. Our lawyers also regularly bring Article 78 challenges in New York State, drawing on their deep familiarity with federal civil rights statutes to craft winning cases.
Seeking Justice For All
Through pro bono and good government work, our lawyers use their skills and experience to effect positive change. We encourage our lawyers to pursue the pro bono matters that are most meaningful to them, which include domestic violence, labor trafficking, immigration, wrongful conviction, harassment allegations, and custody proceedings.
