Farella Names Jessica Nall Chair of White Collar Crime Group

March 25, 2014 Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2014 – Farella Braun + Martel LLP has appointed partner Jessica K. Nall to chair its White Collar Crime and Internal Corporate Investigations Practice.

 

“Jessica’s impressive accomplishments as a lawyer, dedication to mentoring associates and track record of strong leadership inside and outside the firm make her a natural choice as the new chair of the White Collar Crime practice group,” said firm chairman Steve Lowenthal.

 

Nall conducts internal investigations and represents individual executives and companies facing SEC investigations and enforcement actions, DOJ investigations and prosecutions, and related civil actions in a wide range of matters including insider trading, mortgage fraud, tax crimes, environmental crimes, FCPA violations, off-label marketing of pharmaceuticals and financial fraud. Nall is a veteran of U.S. DOJ criminal antitrust investigations and prosecutions, defending individuals (including Korean and Japanese nationals) and entities against allegations of market collusion. 

 

Nall serves as co-chair of the Executive Committee of the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Criminal Justice Section and is a founding member of the San Francisco Bay Area Women’s White Collar Defense Association. She chairs Farella’s Women’s Leadership Committee, which is focused on the advancement and retention of female lawyers at the firm. Nall was named among the “Top 40 Under 40” by the San Francisco Business Times (2013), the “Women Leaders in Law” in California by The Recorder (2012) and the “Top 20 Under 40” attorneys in California by the Daily Journal (2010). She earned her J.D. from Harvard Law School (2001), where she was an assistant editor of the Harvard Women’s Law Journal.
