Barnes & Thornburg LLP’s litigators have extensive experience representing clients in state and federal RICO litigation. Our RICO practitioners represent clients in state and federal court across the country, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in civil RICO cases. The Firm has represented clients in obtaining early resolution of RICO claims, and also in taking cases to trial when it becomes necessary.
For instance, the Firm defended a client in a RICO jury trial in the District of New Jersey where the plaintiff claimed a multi-million dollar injury based on the client’s sales practices. Similarly, the Firm represented a prevailing plaintiff in the District of Columbia, in a case where the district court judge awarded compensatory damages, attorney’s fees and treble damages for RICO violations in light of a telephone provider’s manipulation of charges.
In addition, our litigators have authored articles on civil RICO issues for law journals and legal publications. Additionally, the Firm’s White Collar Crime Practice Group attorneys – including several former prosecutors and Assistant United States Attorneys – represent clients in both civil and criminal proceedings involving allegations of RICO violations.
