Lawrence S. Bader is experienced in representing individuals and corporations in a wide range of complex civil and commercial litigation and in white collar criminal defense matters. As a trial lawyer, he has represented clients in federal and state courts, at the trial and appellate level, throughout the United States as well as in arbitrations before NYSE and NASD panels.
Larry has extensive experience in securities litigation both civil and criminal. Often, those cases relate to concurrent governmental investigations; however, Larry also defends companies and executives in complex civil litigation that is unrelated to any government investigation. Such representations include defense in class actions, derivative cases, and other complex matters, usually involving the securities and antitrust laws. His white collar criminal defense and regulatory practice has been extremely varied, including defending corporations and individuals in matters involving the federal securities laws (disclosure issues, insider trading, stock manipulation, commodities fraud), bank fraud, antitrust violations (bid rigging and price fixing), arms export control violations and tax fraud. He has represented clients under investigation by various United States Attorney’s Offices, District Attorney's Offices, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York State Attorney General’s Office. Larry has also conducted numerous internal investigations for corporate clients and counseled individuals involved in such investigations.
He has been involved in a significant number of high-profile civil and criminal matters, relating to the investigations of Marsh, Inc, The Bayou Fund, Adelphia Communications Corporation, Daiwa Bank, Iran-Contra arms shipments, Drexel Burnham Lambert, Princeton Newport Partners, Wedtech and others.
Larry is a member of the New York City Bar Association (past member of the Criminal Courts Committee), American Bar Association (Antitrust Law, Criminal Justice, and Litigation Sections), Federal Bar Council, New York Council of Defense Lawyers, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (Compliance and Legal Division).
He is also a regular contributor to The Insider Blog on Forbes.com.
