Jenny Kramer, partner in Alston & Bird’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group, has been recognized by Global Investigations Review (GIR) as one of the world’s foremost women investigation attorneys.
Kramer was highlighted by GIR in its 2018 “Women in Investigations,” a survey of the top 100 attorneys assisting companies and individuals in both external and internal investigations.
Kramer’s experience includes white collar criminal defense, internal investigations, regulatory enforcement, and complex commercial litigation. Among her high-profile cases, she helped defend U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez against the government’s unsuccessful corruption case and won a unanimous decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit overturning a lower court ruling and vacating a decision to unseal the identity of client “John Doe” in the so-called Bridgegate scandal in New Jersey.
Before entering private practice, Kramer served for nine years in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey. As an assistant U.S. attorney, she conducted and prosecuted large-scale, complex financial fraud investigations, including market manipulation and investment schemes; securities, corporate, mail, and wire fraud; and insider trading. She worked closely with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on joint investigations yielding both administrative and criminal penalties. Additionally, she successfully tried to verdict numerous cases involving charges of conspiracy, fraud, and obstruction of justice. Kramer also served as acting deputy chief and acting chief of the office’s General Crimes Unit.
“Women in Investigations” is published periodically by GIR. The honorees are selected by GIR's editorial team after an open nomination process.
