Litigators of the Week: Jan Handzlik of Venable and Janet Levine of Crowell & Moring
Dec.01.2011 — AmLaw Litigation Daily
Los Angeles-based chair of Crowell & Moring’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group, Janet Levine, is featured in the American Lawyer Litigation Daily‘s “Litigators of the Week” for her success in vindicating Lindsey Manufacturing Chief Financial Officer by vacating previous convictions and winning complete dismissal of the indictment based on prosecutorial misconduct. The case had been the first-ever trial against a corporate defendant charged under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
According to the article, Levine said “that her client and colleagues were thrilled that the judge had been willing to consider the government's actions over the entire course of the prosecution and ultimately ‘vindicate justice.’”
