Who's Who Legal Business Crime Defence: Individuals

Barry H Berke, co-chair of Kramer Levin’s litigation department and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, is a nationally recognised trial lawyer who represents officers, directors, professionals and corporations in sensitive and high-profile investigations and proceedings.

Mr Berke has handled major matters on behalf of his clients involving all aspects of white-collar crime, including allegations of securities fraud, accounting and bank fraud, RICO and FCPA violations, tax offences, bribery, bid rigging, and embezzlement. Mr Berke also has represented prominent corporations in class action and other complex commercial litigation.

Some of his notable representations include securing the acquittal of a Deutsche Bank investment professional, and the deferred prosecution of another, in a criminal case that the government described as its largest tax shelter prosecution; successfully representing former SAC Capital Fund Advisors fund manager Michael Steinberg in a prominent insider-trading case that was ultimately dropped by US prosecutors; and winning summary judgment for client JPMorgan Chase in a lawsuit brought by Bank of America, relating to CDOs in the wake of the financial crisis. He also successfully represented the mayor of New York City in connection with federal and local investigations.

WWL says: Barry Berke gains widespread recognition this year as “a phenomenal individual defence lawyer”.
