Federal Prosecutor joins Baker Hostetler: Ben Dusing to lead Cincinnati White Collar Defense Practice – Official Release from BakerLaw.com

Posted in Baker Hostetler on 09/07/2010 by @CincinnatiPR

NKy. native Ben Dusing, a former Asst. US Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, is now leading the White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations practice for Baker Hostetler in Greater Cincinnati and the Midwest.

Baker Hostetler announced the continued expansion of its Cincinnati office with the addition of Benjamin G. Dusing.

Dusing, who was most recently an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, will be a Partner in the firm’s White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations practice.

Baker Hostetler’s White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations practice is recognized for providing internal investigations services and defense litigation for leading corporations and their senior officers, as well monitorships.

The firm’s notable experience includes the work of Baker Hostetler Partner Irving Picard, the court-appointed trustee under the Securities Investor Protection Act for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, and Baker Hostetler’s work as court-appointed counsel to trustee Picard.

As an Assistant United States Attorney, Dusing’s work for the Department of Justice focused on prosecutions of sophisticated financial and white collar offenses.

Dusing led the U.S. Attorney’s district-wide Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) review team, charged with reviewing, filtering and pursuing investigative leads provided by financial institutions in accordance with their reporting obligations under the Bank Secrecy Act. He also created and led the Northern Kentucky Financial Crimes Working Group.

Dusing is a seasoned litigator and his notable experience includes four successful RICO prosecutions and convictions. He has first-chaired or co-chaired more than 20 federal criminal jury trials.

Prior to joining the United States Attorney’s Office, Dusing was an Associate with Baker Hostetler in Cincinnati. Following law school, he held clerkships with the Honorable Eugene E. Siler, Jr. in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, as well as with the Honorable Joseph M. Hood in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

“As part of the firm’s smart growth strategy, the addition of Ben brings a key strength to the Cincinnati market and broadens the firm’s capability to provide representation to clients in disputes with federal and state agencies,” said Steven Kestner, national Executive Partner of the firm.

“We are pleased to welcome Ben and his notable litigation and white collar defense experience to Baker Hostetler,” added David Holcombe, Partner-in-Charge of the firm’s Cincinnati office.

“The addition of a talented federal prosecutor to our experienced team of Cincinnati-based attorneys complements the firm’s ability to service an increasingly sophisticated client roster locally and across the nation,” Holcombe said.

“As an accomplished litigator and prosecutor, Ben joins a growing national team of white collar practitioners with backgrounds that include distinguished careers in government,” said John Carney, co-leader of Baker Hostetler’s national White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations practice. “His talent and experience will benefit the national clients of the firm and build on the strength of our litigation capabilities.”

“Ben brings additional capabilities to our national Litigation Group and to our Cincinnati office,” said Ray Whitman, head of the firm’s national Litigation Group. “Our litigation capabilities are second to none, and Ben’s addition further builds on our strength.”
