Chambers and Partners, one of the preeminent directories and arbiters of leading law firms and lawyers across the globe, has recognized Larson LLP and partners Stephen G. Larson and Hilary Potashner for white collar defense and government investigations work in its 2022 edition of Chambers USA.

In California, Larson is ranked among the “Litigation: Specialist Firms in White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations” and Stephen and Hilary are ranked among the top lawyers for “Litigation: White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations.”

Client and attorney referees shared their experiences working with Stephen and Hilary, as well as candid feedback on the firm, as part of Chambers’ annual research process.

Chambers introduces Larson as a “high-caliber trial boutique with significant experience defending clients against DOJ and SEC investigations and enforcement concerning FCPA violations, healthcare fraud, environmental crimes, and securities actions.”

In recognizing the highly experienced attorneys at Larson, Chambers explains that, “clients also benefit from the firm’s strong pool of former judges, prosecutors, and public defenders.”

“The attorneys at Larson LLP are outstanding, with a wide breadth of experience in complex federal and state criminal and civil matters. The service that the firm provides to its clients and co-counsel is outstanding.”

Chambers, which first ranked Stephen in the 2021 edition of Chambers USA, acclaims his years as a U.S. District Judge and notes that he now “offers considerable expertise in trial work on behalf of clients facing white-collar criminal enforcement.” One referee praised Stephen as “one of the brightest and most hard-working lawyers.”

“Stephen is an outstanding advocate for his clients. He has the capability to digest complex legal issues and present cogent and persuasive arguments to a jury or judge. He is one of the finest oral advocates with whom I have ever had the privilege to work.”

Hilary Potashner

“She is an incredible trial lawyer,” Chambers quotes one referee about Hilary, who is ranked in Chambers USA for the first time this year. The 2022 guide commends Hilary’s career as the former Federal Public Defender for the Central District of California and notes that she “leverages her significant expertise . . . to act for a wide array of corporate clients and executives facing major criminal enforcement actions.”

Another referee definitively stated, “She is one of the finest defense attorneys that I know.”

“[Hilary’s] a phenomenal advocate and was so measured as a public defender, and she has translated that into private practice and been able to do it in a way that not many can.”
