Seward & Kissel LLP partner Rita Glavin has been named a White Collar Crime Trailblazer by The National Law Journal. The list recognized only 25 attorneys nationally who have acted as pioneers and achieved remarkable success in the area of white collar crime.

In one of the highest-profile white-collar trials of 2017, Glavin earned the acquittal of Stephen DiCarmine, the former executive director of Dewey & LeBoeuf, on securities fraud and conspiracy charges. The victory was just the most public of the year for Glavin, whose wide-ranging successes for clients often never become public because of her advocacy during investigations.

Co-head of Seward & Kissel’s Government Enforcement and Internal Investigations practice, Glavin represents individuals and companies in high-stakes government investigations. Prior to entering private practice in 2010, she worked for almost 12 years as a prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice and served as head of the DOJ’s Criminal Division in 2009, where she supervised more than 400 attorneys in enforcing federal law in such areas as the FCPA, corporate crimes, securities fraud, health care fraud, campaign finance, public corruption, money laundering, and cybercrime.
