LOS ANGELES, CA—Buchalter is pleased to welcome and announce that Joshua Robbins has joined the Firm as Chair of its newly formed White Collar & Investigations practice. He will work out of both the Los Angeles and Orange County offices. Robbins, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, previously led the white-collar defense practice at boutique firm Greenberg Gross LLP.
While in private practice and government, Robbins led large-scale trials, appeals, and investigations, many drawing national and international media attention and raising novel legal issues. His cases, which often focus on claims of fraud, corruption, and theft, have spanned industries from health care to finance to technology, and involved representation of Fortune 500 companies, sovereign governments, and prominent individuals. Examples include the prosecution of a $900 million health care kickback scheme involving Pacific Hospital of Long Beach described as the largest insurance fraud case in California history, and the trials of $170 million securities fraud and $200 million tax fraud schemes.
