A former federal prosecutor in the influential Southern District of New York, Bob Buehler has over 25 years of experience in all facets of white collar and government enforcement work. As a partner in our Investigations, White Collar and Fraud group, Bob represents major financial institutions and other large corporations, as well as their most important employees, in high-stakes and sensitive government investigations.

Bob spent more than 11 years as an Assistant United States Attorney in Manhattan, where he eventually rose to become Chief of the Organized Crime & Terrorism Unit. As a federal prosecutor, Bob tried more than a dozen jury trials to verdict and argued numerous appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Bob draws from his vast experiences to advise clients in investigations involving complex financial and securities frauds, antitrust violations, foreign corruption and bribery, and insider trading. He routinely defends banks, brokerage firms, and their senior executives in all manner of government investigations.

Bob also conducts internal investigations for corporations in a variety of fields, including finance, banking, and shipping. After more than a quarter century in private practice and government, Bob is sensitive to the risks and concerns, both reputational and financial, that corporations, large and small, face in these difficult and challenging situations.

Bob has represented various corporate and individual clients in cross-border and multijurisdictional investigations, as well as court proceedings. His experience translates into an understanding of the unique challenges that arise when dealing with multiple law enforcement agencies in different states and countries.
