Media Mention, Firm News

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce the expansion of its White Collar Criminal Defense practice group with the addition of Gregory G. Marshall as a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. Mr. Marshall spent 12 years with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District, and served for 20 months as Deputy Chief of its federal court Criminal Division.

“Greg is a welcome addition to our Washington office and White Collar practice, both of which are priorities for continued strategic growth,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “He brings a wealth of talent and experience to our firm.”

While serving as Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division of the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office from 2009 to 2010, Mr. Marshall supervised approximately 75 attorneys handling all manner of federal investigations and cases, including international and domestic terrorism, export enforcement, public corruption, health care fraud, corporate and securities fraud, tax fraud, and money laundering. Mr. Marshall also served in the Fraud and Public Corruption Section of the D.C. USAO, prosecuting cases involving mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, theft of government property, and false statements, in addition to other matters. He also worked in the Organized Crime and Narcotics Trafficking Section of the D.C. USAO, prosecuting multi-defendant drug and gang conspiracies under the federal narcotics, racketeering, and money laundering statutes.

“We are pleased to have someone with Greg’s background join our practice,” said Stephen R. Spivack, a partner in the firm’s Washington office, the co-head of the White Collar practice group, and also a former supervisor in the Criminal Division of the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office. “As we grow this group we are looking for attorneys such as Greg who will complement the existing services we provide to clients.”

In addition to Spivack, Mr. Marshall joins former prosecutor Jack Selden in Bradley Arant’s White Collar practice. Selden, the other head of the White Collar group, is based in the firm’s Birmingham office. Selden served as United States Attorney in the Northern District of Alabama, and is a past President of the National Association of Former United States Attorneys.

“I have great respect for the attorneys at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, and when I made the decision to go into private practice the firm turned out to be a terrific fit,” said Mr. Marshall. “With its excellent reputation for white collar criminal defense work, as well as trial and appellate litigation, I believe the firm will provide me with a strong platform for this next step in my career.”

During his tenure with the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Marshall also served as Acting Chief of the Asset Forfeiture Unit (March to June 2010) and as a Senior Litigation Counsel (2006 to 2007). As an AUSA he directed scores of grand jury investigations, took approximately 45 cases to trial, argued eight direct appeals, and earned nine Department of Justice special achievement awards for superior performance. From 2005 to 2007, he was a member of the adjunct faculty at the University of Virginia School of Law. Prior to becoming an AUSA, Mr. Marshall clerked for Chief Judge Joseph W. Hatchett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and worked at Rogers & Wells (now Clifford Chance LLP) in New York City. Mr. Marshall holds a J.D. from Cornell Law School, a Master of Public Administration from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and a B.A. from Bucknell University.

Mr. Marshall is admitted only in New York and Connecticut; he is practicing law in the District of Columbia pending admission to the D.C. Bar and under the supervision of principals of the firm who are members of the D.C. Bar.
