Alston & Bird partner Edward (Ted) Kang has been named one of Washington, D.C.’s “Rising Stars” by The National Law Journal in its annual recognition of the region’s most promising lawyers age 40 and under.
As reported by the publication: “When federal investigators come knocking, businesses have Alston & Bird partner Edward Kang on speed dial.”
Among Kang’s many accomplishments, The National Law Journal points to his four years as a trial attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice Criminal Division’s public integrity and fraud sections, where he worked on the criminal case stemming from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill and criminal lobbying and bribery investigations into the office of a former U.S. Senator and numerous state legislators and lobbyists. He is a recipient of the 2012 U.S. Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award.
Since joining Alston & Bird in its Government & Investigations Group in 2013, Kang has focused on white-collar matters concerning the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions, among other issues.
