White-Collar Litigator Jonathan Green Joins Kaye Scholer as Counsel
As a former AUSA and Senior Counsel at the SEC, Green noted for his enforcement background
New York — Litigator and former AUSA and SEC Enforcement Division attorney Jonathan Green has joined Kaye Scholer’s White Collar Litigation and Internal Investigations group in its New York office.
“Jonathan’s strong enforcement background, particularly as senior counsel at the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, coupled with his experience prosecuting securities fraud cases in the Eastern District of New York, are true assets for clients facing civil and criminal investigations,” said Michael Rogoff, Chair of Kaye Scholer’s White-Collar Litigation and Internal Investigation group and Co-Chair of Kaye Scholer’s Commercial Litigation department.
Green’s recruitment follows fresh on the heels of the arrival of White-Collar Litigation Partner and former federal prosecutor Amy Conway-Hatcher, who joined the Firm’s Washington, DC office in late January.
During his tenure at the SEC, Green led investigations involving allegations of market manipulation, fraudulent and unregistered securities offerings, insider trading and accounting improprieties, among other matters. While an AUSA in the Eastern District of New York, Green successfully prosecuted criminal matters involving allegations of securities fraud, money laundering, mortgage fraud, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, among others, and served as the EDNY’s Mortgage Fraud Coordinator.
Green also served as a law clerk to The Hon. Dora L. Irizarry of the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
Kaye Scholer’s White Collar Litigation and Internal Investigations group has significant prosecutorial and enforcement experience, and includes 11 former federal prosecutors from the US Attorney Offices for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Illinois and the Northern District of California, as well as several former state prosecutors who worked as Assistant State Attorneys General or Assistant District Attorneys.
