SCOTTSDALE, AZ—Buchalter recently added a number of new attorneys to round out its White Collar and Investigations Practice, including the former Acting United States Attorney for the District of Arizona, Anthony Martin, as well as Adam Sechooler and Arielle Seidman. Launched in 2020, Buchalter’s White Collar and Investigations Group has quickly expanded into a robust practice, including over a dozen attorneys across the majority of the Firm’s offices.
Martin, who was also previously the Chief Deputy Attorney General of West Virginia, focuses his practice on government investigations, state attorneys general enforcement actions, and high-stakes, multi-jurisdictional litigation. Drawing on his extensive law enforcement and multi-state litigation background, he has managed civil and criminal litigation and investigations in a range of subject matter throughout his career. Martin’s diverse spectrum of experience dealing with government investigations has regularly received national attention and covered by the Associated Press, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Reuters, CNN, Fox News, and others.
Sechooler and Seidman join Buchalter in its Orange County office. Sechooler focuses his practice on business litigation, high-stakes disputes, and white-collar defense. Before joining Buchalter, Sechooler practiced at an elite boutique litigation firm and clerked for the Honorable John W. Holcomb in the Central District of California. Seidman, formerly of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, has represented clients in groundbreaking litigation, including the defense of Qualcomm against FTC antitrust claims and pursuing RICO and human trafficking claims against a major multinational religious organization.
