Mayer Brown adds Kelly B. Kramer to expand
White Collar Defense and Securities Enforcement groups

13 October 2011

Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, announced today that Kelly B. Kramer has joined the firm’s Washington, DC office as a partner in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice, focusing his efforts in the White Collar Defense & Compliance and Securities Litigation & Enforcement groups.

Mr. Kramer has nearly 15 years of experience defending companies and individuals in white collar investigations and enforcement actions involving clients in Asia, Europe and the Americas. Most recently, he has represented clients in financial fraud, securities, tax, public corruption, and antitrust investigations and enforcement proceedings involving the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and state attorneys general. He also represents clients in the civil suits that frequently accompany such investigations. 

Mr. Kramer cited Mayer Brown’s global platform as a key reason he chose to join the firm. “The economy is global and, increasingly, so too are criminal and regulatory investigations.  Tax, corruption, fraud and antitrust cases now routinely involve enforcement authorities from many different countries,” he said.  “Mayer Brown’s global footprint and its deep experience and capabilities in a wide-range of regulatory and compliance services make the firm the ideal place for me to expand my practice.”

Currently, Mr. Kramer is the principal defense attorney for individuals and companies in SEC investigations and multi-district civil litigation, public corruption investigations and prosecutions, asset forfeiture litigation, and international Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and tax investigations. 

Previously, Mr. Kramer was a partner at a prominent Washington, DC law firm. He received his JD from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, cum laude, and his BA, cum laude, from the College of William & Mary.
