JAIMIE NAWADAY Partner
Jaimie Nawaday focuses her practice on government investigations, white collar defense and civil litigation.  She advises and represents organizations and individuals in government investigations relating to potential violations of federal criminal law, the False Claims Act, and asset forfeiture matters.  She has also repeatedly appeared on MSNBC to explain and comment on developing issues in federal criminal law.

As an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) for seven years, Jaimie served in both the Civil and Criminal Divisions and successfully handled both civil and criminal jury trials.  Jaimie’s broad experience in handling large, complex cases gives her a unique perspective in guiding clients through government investigations and high stakes litigation.  She uses that experience to steer companies through a range of issues that accompany challenging investigations, including parallel inquiries from regulators and press coverage.  She also represents companies operating in the state-legal cannabis market both on compliance issues and in law enforcement or regulator inquiries.

As a member of the Civil Division’s Civil Fraud Unit, Jaimie spearheaded significant fraud cases, notably, the Bank of America fraud trial, the first case the Department of Justice tried under FIRREA and the first trial by the Department of Justice against a major financial institution in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.  In 2015, Jaimie received the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award in connection with negotiating a global settlement of federal and state civil fraud actions.

As a prosecutor, Jaimie served as co-lead trial counsel in a month-long RICO conspiracy trial that involved securities and health care fraud and money-laundering schemes, and was co-lead trial counsel in a civil asset forfeiture trial—the first such case that the government tried in more than seven years.  Jaimie was also a member of the Criminal Division’s Money Laundering and Asset Forfeiture Unit.  In that role, Jaimie investigated and prosecuted international money laundering, Bank Secrecy Act and asset forfeiture matters.  Jaimie also worked closely with federal banking and other regulators and U.S. Attorney’s offices nationwide, providing advice on cases involving fraud and money laundering.

Prior to joining the SDNY, Jaimie was an associate at two major commercial law firms, where she worked on a variety of financial, commercial and intellectual property litigation matters, as well as on internal investigations for financial institutions.

Jaimie clerked for the late Honorable M. Blane Michael, United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Charleston, West Virginia.
