US: Former federal prosecutor joins Katten Muchin

 |  September 14, 2017

Katten Muchin Rosenman announced today that William C. Pericak, a former federal prosecutor and seasoned trial lawyer, has joined its Washington, DC, office as a partner in the firm’s White Collar, Investigations and Compliance practice.

With more than 25 years of first-chair experience, Pericak represents clients in government investigations and complex civil and criminal matters ranging from healthcare fraud and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to environmental crimes, money laundering/anti-terrorism, bribery and corporate fraud.

“Strategic-thinking and highly skilled attorneys like Bill are exactly what our clients expect of us,” said Katten Chairman Roger P. Furey. “His experience at the highest levels of federal government and his legal know-how across health care, environmental and white collar matters deepen our ability to address the most complex legal issues in those areas and augment our growing Corporate Monitor team.”

Formerly a partner at Jenner & Block, Pericak worked for the US Department of Justice for 25 years, including as director of the Deepwater Horizon Task Force, where he led the unit prosecuting criminal violations related to the BP-Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
