Jocelyn Strauber represents companies and individuals in a wide array of criminal and civil enforcement matters. Prior to joining Skadden in 2013, Ms. Strauber held numerous roles at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, including, most recently, co-chief of the Criminal Division’s Terrorism & International Narcotics Unit. In this role, she supervised investigations and prosecutions involving terrorism and national security, arms trafficking, money laundering, violations of export controls and economic sanctions, and global narcotics trafficking.

Ms. Strauber supervised the successful prosecution of several high-profile terrorism and national security cases, including Faisal Shahzad (attempted Times Square bomber) and Mansour Arbabsiar (in connection with a conspiracy to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States). She also was part of the team that secured the guilty plea of Jamaican drug lord Christopher Coke. In 2011, she was the recipient of the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award.

Earlier in her career, Ms. Strauber clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. She also served as a Bristow Fellow in the Office of the Solicitor General in the U.S. Department of Justice and clerked for the Hon. A. Raymond Randolph in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Ms. Strauber’s experience includes representing, among others:

  • a broker-dealer in an ongoing Financial Industry Regulatory Authority investigation;
  • an individual in an ongoing SEC Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigation;
  • an individual in an ongoing SEC federal district court action concerning an alleged viola- tion of a commission order suspending that individual from practicing accounting before the commission;
  • an international health care company in an ongoing cross-border SEC and Department of Justice FCPA investigation;
  • a major financial institution in connection with an ongoing U.S. economic sanctions investigation; and
  • JPMorgan Chase & Co. in the successful resolution of government investigations into the propriety of trading activities within its foreign exchange business, both in London and other jurisdictions globally. Skadden successfully negotiated resolutions with U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Reserve, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Hong Kong Monetary Authority and U.K. Financial Conduct Authority.
