GeyerGorey LLP was founded in 2012 by three experienced former federal prosecutors—Brad Geyer, Hays Gorey and Bob Zastrow—with a focus on antitrust and other white-collar criminal defense work. It has quickly grown into a powerhouse boutique with the capacity to handle complex civil and criminal litigation as well as corporate internal investigations and counseling on corporate compliance issues.
With offices in five cities, the firm now includes 10 senior-level attorneys who have a broad range of experience in business-related counseling and litigation, including white-collar criminal, civil antitrust, procurement fraud (including qui tam (whistleblower) actions, corporate internal investigations and counseling on compliance, including foreign bribery (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act). Because of its stable of former United States Department of Justice prosecutors, the firm is in a unique position to conduct internal investigations of possible criminal conduct, and is designed to effectively address these issues with enforcement agencies both inside and outside the United States.
The firm has begun to develop its international compliance practice with a focus on Asia (in particular, Vietnam) and the Middle East. GeyerGorey LLP has an association with a new entity, FormerFeds LLP, which will soon be offering compliance services, i.e., internal investigations, research and training on global issues, to foreign companies that wish to make themselves more appealing as potential “partners” (third-party vendors) or even as potential “acquirees” for U.S. companies. In connection with this practice, the firm is able to conduct internal investigations when possible breaches of laws are suspected.
