Biography

Janice Reicher is a partner and co-chair of Farella’s White Collar Defense and Internal Corporate Investigations Group. She brings a unique combination of skill, creativity, and courageous advocacy to her practice, which she divides between white collar criminal matters and complex business litigation.

Janice routinely represents individuals and entities in federal and state court, in both criminal and parallel civil matters. The individuals she advises are typically high-level corporate executives who require counsel as they navigate the litigation or investigation process, which may present material risks to their careers, reputations, and liberty. She has particularly extensive experience defending individuals accused of criminal trade secret theft, as well as antitrust and securities violations. She regularly conducts internal corporate investigations in high-stakes matters involving issues such as securities and public corruption.

In her business litigation practice, Janice’s experience ranges from cases involving complex contractual disputes to matters alleging fraud, unfair competition, and breach of fiduciary duty.

Janice clerked for The Honorable Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and served as an extern for The Honorable William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
