Jonathan Pollard – Extensive Securities Experience
Jonathan has particular experience in the realm of securities. Even before he became a lawyer, while attending law school at Georgetown, Jonathan was a contributing writer for The Hedge Fund Law Report.
Following his graduation from Georgetown Law, he began his career at the prominent law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner, where he represented several hundred investors who had lost billions of dollars with the Fairfield Greenwich Group hedge funds, the largest feeder funds that flowed into Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi Scheme.
In the years since starting his own firm, Jonathan has litigated numerous cases under state and federal securities laws, including cases involving securities fraud, Ponzi schemes, and the sale of unregistered securities. He has advised numerous clients regarding securities compliance and represented clients in connection with various governmental investigations. He brings unique perspective to bear on securities matters, having worked both the plaintiff and defense side of such matters.
Jonathan and the firm represent clients in all phases of government investigations with the goal of resolving such matters without any damage to client reputation or any legal exposure. This requires an aggressive and proactive approach to representation before the SEC, DOJ and other government entities. Our attorneys will immediately ascertain the government’s case against you, assess your potential exposure and quickly move to counter the government’s narrative with our own.
In many instances, the best strategy involves full cooperation with the government. And in all instances, those being investigated by governmental agencies must ensure full compliance with their obligations. This often entails responding to extensive subpoenas from the government and undertaking large scale document production.
Where appropriate, the firm will negotiate plea agreements and settlements. And when necessary, the firm will defend clients against white collar claims through trial and appeal. Jonathan Pollard is an experienced litigator and has tried federal cases to jury verdict and prevailed on appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
