Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP announced a further expansion of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. Martin J. Weinstein and Robert J. Meyer have joined the firm as partners and will lead a firmwide Compliance & Enforcement practice from the Washington office. Mr. Weinstein and Mr. Meyer, former partners of Foley & Lardner, will continue their practice representing corporations, organizations, and individuals in a wide variety of civil and criminal lawsuits and investigations involving a variety of compliance and white-collar matters, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Alien Tort Claims Act, export controls, money laundering, economic espionage, bribery, fraud, and financial crimes. Mr. Weinstein, who will chair the new group at Willkie, was formerly an Assistant United States Attorney in the Fraud Section of the Northern District of Georgia, where he focused on international, corporate finance, government contract, and tax matters. Mr. Meyer previously served as a federal prosecutor for more than 10 years in the federal justice system focusing on similar matters. Mr. Weinstein and Mr. Meyer are the latest in a number of high profile additions to the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. Last month, former Delaware Bank Commissioner Timothy R. McTaggart joined the firm as a partner in the Corporate and Financial Services Department, specializing in bank and financial services regulatory matters. The Washington office was also recently joined by former General Counsel of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency E. Donald Elliott, who is now the partner in charge of the firm’s Environmental Department, and by Telecommunications partner James L. Casserly, who served as Senior Legal Advisor to Federal Communications Commissioner Susan Ness.
