Partner Christopher Ott is quoted in a Los Angeles Times article titled "Feds execute warrant at Rudolph Giuliani's New York home, source says" on April 28, 2021.
The recent raid of former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani's home by agents as part of a federal investigation likely means prosecutors believe they could already indict Mr. Giuliani.
Mr. Ott, a former federal prosecutor, was quoted as saying: “This is not the type of law enforcement action that is done on a whim. This means Mr. Giuliani is in serious trouble.”
Prior to joining Rothwell Figg, Mr. Ott spent 13 years at the Department of Justice (DOJ) in various influential roles in which he successfully litigated complex data security matters, conducted hundreds of investigations, and won dozens of appeals. Most recently, Mr. Ott acted as Supervisory Cyber Counsel to the National Security Division of the DOJ. In private practice, he leads data security, privacy, and white collar litigation and investigations. Mr. Ott has handled hundreds of matters involving the intersection between white collar matters (accounting, securities, money laundering) and cybercrimes (from international criminal gangs to state actors).
