Eric is a former federal prosecutor and experienced trial lawyer adept at handling complex cases from investigation through verdict in a variety of arenas. Before joining GHM, Eric spent a decade practicing criminal law as an Assistant District Attorney at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office in New York, as a white-collar defense attorney at an international law firm, and as an Assistant U.S. Attorney at the Justice Department. As a federal prosecutor in the Economic Crimes Section, he led grand jury investigations into a wide range of white-collar offenses—from securities, healthcare, and tax frauds to public corruption, obstruction of justice, and export control violations—and tried cases as varied as international money laundering, wire fraud conspiracy, identity theft, cybercrimes, and a plot to murder federal witnesses. Eric also has extensive experience in high-stakes civil litigation, having represented both plaintiffs and defendants in securities fraud class actions, insurance disputes, environmental matters, False Claims Act cases, and commercial litigation. Eric draws on this unusual breadth of experience as a fierce advocate for Firm clients at all stages of their most sensitive matters, be they government investigations, criminal prosecutions, regulatory actions, or private litigation.
