Firm Overview

Driscoll & Redlich represents individual and institutional clients in complex criminal litigation and appeals; internal corporate investigations; securities enforcement matters and arbitrations; civil and criminal tax cases; professional disciplinary matters; and sentencing litigation. The firm was founded in 1994 by Peter J. Driscoll and Catherine L. Redlich, then partners in a preeminent New York City white-collar defense firm. Their shared vision was to establish a sophisticated legal practice in a small firm context, thereby offering clients highly individualized attention, partner accessibility, and the substantial economies of a smaller specialty practice with the expertise and capabilities of a larger firm.

More than 18 years later, that vision has been fully realized. Driscoll & Redlich has developed an outstanding reputation in the defense bar for its personal attention to client needs, superior written advocacy, exceptional trial skills, and creative approaches to achieving favorable resolutions — often before any formal charges have been filed. Its partners, each of whom has more than twenty-five years of litigation experience, practice in a wide range of settings, including federal courts nationwide, New York State courts, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA, the PCAOB, the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, and other governmental agencies and self-regulatory organizations.

Driscoll & Redlich's clients come from a broad spectrum of industries and professions. Currently, for example, the firm represents:

  • a lawyer charged with insider trading in the federal investigation of Raj Rajaratnam and the Galleon Group;
  • individuals in the federal and DOI investigation of CityTime, New York's scandal-ridden automated payroll project;
  • a portfolio manager of Bear Stearns' billion-dollar hedge funds in criminal and civil litigation arising out of the funds' collapse in the wake of the subprime mortgage crisis;
  • a construction company under investigation by New York City for failure to comply with the Minority Business Enterprise program;
  • the Head Trader of a major financial institution's Auction Rate Securities Desk in federal and S.E.C. investigations of the auction rate market;
  • a construction contractor under investigation for federal tax violations;
  • an international airline in a federal antitrust investigation;
  • an executive in the federal investigation of corruption in the awarding and execution of contracts to remediate the Meadowlands;
  • the lead corporate and individual defendants in the New York Attorney General's investigation of allegedly fraudulent Medicaid billing practices;
  • the officer of a company under investigation by the Department of Justice and ICE pertaining to the hiring of illegal aliens;
  • a partner of a major accounting firm in connection with the investigation and prosecution of Senator Pedro Espada;
  • a business owner charged with federal payroll tax evasion.
