Telemachus P. Kasulis represents individuals and organizations in high-stakes criminal, civil, and regulatory matters, and in internal corporate investigations.
During his eleven years at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, Tim investigated and prosecuted cases involving insider trading, accounting fraud, market manipulation, investment adviser and broker-dealer fraud, Ponzi schemes, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, racketeering, murder, and obstruction of justice. As Co-Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force at the U.S. Attorney's Office, Tim oversaw a team of approximately 20 senior prosecutors and all aspects of their work from investigation through trial. Notable matters Tim supervised included: the insider trading trial of a professional gambler who received tips from the chairman of a Fortune 500 company; the trial of two pharmaceutical company executives for honest services fraud; the trial of two hedge fund portfolio managers and a political intelligence analyst who misappropriated and traded on government health care secrets; the trial of a portfolio manager who overstated the value of illiquid fund assets under management; the accounting fraud trial of an executive who manipulated a critical non-GAAP company metric; charges against individuals for hacking major New York law firms; charges against partners at a Big Four accounting firm for their role in a scheme to misappropriate confidential information from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB); charges against the director of fixed income at the New York State Common Retirement Fund (NYSCRF) for steering billions of dollars of trades in exchange for bribes; and insider trading charges against a sitting United States Congressman.
Prior to supervising the Task Force, Tim served as Co-Chief of the Southern District’s General Crimes Unit, where he trained and supervised dozens of the Southern District’s newest prosecutors. He also conducted ten trials and argued nine appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. His notable matters included the insider trading trial of Chief Information Officer and former Central Intelligence Agency employee David Riley and the prosecution of David Murcia Guzman (DMG) – referred to in the press as the “Bernie Madoff of Colombia” – and several confederates for running an international money laundering enterprise.
Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Tim served as a law clerk to the Honorable Joseph M. McLaughlin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He also practiced at Davis Polk & Wardwell and has taught Advanced Trial Advocacy at Fordham Law School. He is a member of the New York City Bar’s White Collar Criminal Law Committee and a frequent speaker on white collar and securities enforcement issues.
Tim received his J.D. from Cornell Law School in 2002, where he was an editor of the Law Review. He received his B.A. from Yale College in 1998.
