WASHINGTON, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lewis Baach, an international litigation firm based in Washington D.C., announced today that Adam Kaufmann and Arthur Middlemiss, two prominent white collar practitioners have joined the firm, and have launched the firm's New York office, practicing as Lewis Baach Kaufmann Middlemiss (LBKM).
Kaufmann and Middlemiss come to LBKM both having held senior leadership positions in the New York County District Attorney's Office ("DANY"). Kaufmann, the former Chief of the Investigation Division, supervised over 100 prosecutors who handled criminal matters involving international white-collar crime, sanctions violations, and organized crime. Middlemiss, the former chief of a bureau that focused on international white-collar crime, known informally as "DANY Overseas," left DANY in 2007. He recently served at JPMorgan Chase & Co., where he held senior positions in the firm's anti-money laundering program, and was named its first Director of the Global Anti-Corruption Program.
"We are delighted that Adam Kaufmann and Art Middlemiss are joining our firm. We have had a relationship of friendship and mutual respect for many years," said senior partner Eric Lewis. "Their decision to join Lewis Baach is further evidence of the growing trend among top talent in our industry to choose firms based on expertise and focus, rather than size and number of practice areas."
Kaufmann and Middlemiss will add to the firm's global practice in criminal and regulatory corporate misconduct, international securities and bank fraud, anti-money laundering and sanctions violations, and corruption-related issues. They will also work with old and new clients worldwide to build effective, efficient compliance controls for sanctions, anti-money laundering and anti-corruption risk.
