Who's Who Legal Business Crime Defence: Individuals

Paul H Schoeman, co-chair of Kramer Levin’s white-collar defence and investigations practice, defends clients in complex and high-profile criminal, civil and regulatory matters involving every aspect of white-collar crime, including securities fraud, money laundering, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, healthcare fraud, insider trading, accounting fraud and tax evasion. A skilled advocate in and out of the courtroom, Mr Schoeman represents corporations and individuals in investigations conducted by the US Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the US Congress, the New York State Attorney General’s office and other authorities. His work on behalf of his clients also includes conducting internal corporate investigations.

Among his most notable matters, Mr Schoeman secured an acquittal of a former Deutsche Bank Alex Brown investment representative on all charges of conspiring to deprive the IRS of billions of tax dollars through the use of allegedly abusive tax shelters after a jury trial in the US district court for the southern district of New York. He also secured the acquittal of the former deputy speaker of the New York State Assembly, Clarence Norman Jr, on all charges of grand larceny and the filing of false instruments after a jury trial in New York State Supreme Court.

Mr Schoeman served as the chief assistant US attorney for the eastern district of New York from 2007–2009. He also served as an assistant United States attorney, first as a line assistant and subsequently as the deputy chief of the general crimes section.

Mr Schoeman is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

WWL says: Paul Schoeman wins high praise from market sources who highlight his first-class white-collar defence practice as well as his strong experience in the field.
