Randall Jackson, partner and Co-Chair of Willkie’s White-Collar Defense Practice Group, has been appointed by New York City Mayor Eric Adams to the Commission to Combat Police Corruption (CCPC).
The CCPC serves as an independent commission to monitor the anti-corruption activities of the New York City Police Department. Created in 1995, the CCPC has issued 25 substantive reports that focus on specific issues within the NYPD and 18 Annual Reports that detail the Commission’s review of Internal Affairs investigations and the NYPD’s disciplinary system. Randall is among the Commissioners appointed by the mayor to direct the full-time staff in fulfilling the CCPC’s mandate.
At Willkie, Randall focuses on government and internal investigations, white-collar criminal defense, complex civil litigation and regulatory compliance. Prior to working in private practice, Randall was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he was a senior member of the Securities Fraud, Public Corruption and Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. 
Randall has served as lead or co-lead attorney in over 20 federal trials, including some of the highest-profile trials in recent years. In 2022, he co-led the defense to a complete acquittal of client Thomas Barrack, founder of Colony Capital, in a closely watched trial alleging illegal foreign lobbying, obstruction of justice and other charges. 
In 2013, as a prosecutor, Randall successfully co-led the six-month long prosecution of five lieutenants of Bernard L. Madoff. He was awarded the U.S. Department of Justice's Distinguished Service Award and the John Marshall Award for his work as a prosecutor on the Times Square Bomber and Madoff cases, respectively.
