Founded in 2015 by three former Assistant U.S. Attorneys, Walden Macht & Haran LLP is a New York-based law firm focusing on white collar defense and investigations, complex commercial disputes, monitorships, and corporate compliance. Our team is known for its intelligence, integrity, and outstanding track record in high stakes matters both in and out of court.
White-Collar Defense: WMH’s practice is led by formal federal prosecutors with exceptional track records in helping businesses successfully navigate sensitive investigations and high-stakes, white collar matters. We provide strategic counsel with proven success and credibility in an enforcement environment with higher risks of massive corporate penalties, risk of imprisonment for executives, and civil litigation.
Complex Commercial Litigation: The firm’s practice concentrates on complex media and entertainment, antitrust, fraud, and real estate litigation. As accomplished trial lawyers and former federal prosecutors, we translate our extensive experience in federal and New York state courts into winning legal strategies.
Corporate Monitorships: Corporate monitorships allow companies to satisfy legal obligations, remediate past mistakes and safeguard against future wrongdoing. WMH has a history of successfully fulfilling government-ordered monitor positions, combining strong industry relationships, deep subject matter knowledge, and a proven commitment to transparency.
Employment Litigation: WMH has substantial experience working with companies and high-level executives to resolve their most sensitive and challenging employee matters with minimal disruption to business. Our team includes one of the only former federal prosecutors practicing employment law.
Good Government and Civil Rights: From leading the charge against school bullying to demanding safe and secure public housing for the disadvantaged, WMH is at the forefront of high-profile litigation to combat government abuses. We also regularly bring Article 78 challenges in New York State, drawing on our deep familiarity with federal civil rights statutes to craft winning cases.
Internal Investigations: WMH conducts complex internal investigations in the financial, real estate, health care, industrial, automotive, energy, retail, and entertainment sectors. Our investigations have covered securities fraud, insider trading, foreign bribery, antitrust offenses, accounting violations, economic-sanctions violations, cyber-based offenses, money laundering, embezzlement, false billing, and off-label marketing. In our cross-border investigations – which have spanned several continents – we coordinate seamlessly with U.S. and international agencies, even when they are working at cross purposes. Enforcement authorities here and abroad rely on us whether we are disclosing wrongdoing or defending against false allegations.
Committed to Social Change: Through pro bono and good government work, our lawyers use their skills and experience to effect positive change, including providing crucial counseling to community groups and religious institutions on their dealings with government agencies. We encourage our lawyers to pursue the pro bono matters that are most meaningful to them, which include domestic violence, immigration, wrongful conviction, harassment allegations, and custody proceedings.
