Arent Fox LLP announced the addition of a former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York to their New York office. High profile prosecutor Robert L. Capers will co-lead the firm’s Government Enforcement & White Collar practice, greatly aiding in their ability to continue a strong seven-year straight trend of growth.

Capers had success prosecuting high-profile cases involving racketeering, public corruption, and international narcotics trafficking. He began his career in 1996 at the New York County District Attorney’s Office, working under Robert M. Morgenthau. In 2003, he moved to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York to serve as a line and supervisory prosecutor.

Chairman Mark M. Katz said, “Rob has distinguished himself as one of the top prosecutors in the country and is a great addition to our world-class Government Enforcement & White-Collar group that now includes two former US Attorneys. With Rob’s exceptional background and reputation, his options were limitless. He chose Arent Fox because of our unique culture and outstanding group of partners. Rob’s innovative thinking and experience managing one of the busiest US Attorney’s Offices in the country will be an invaluable service for clients.”

He is also joining the blooming Business Compliance & Integrity Monitorships team, which regularly advises corporations on governance best practices, through high-profile internal investigations, counsels Boards of Directors, creates world-class compliance programs, and represents individuals and corporations.

New York Managing Partner Andrew I. Silfen added, “Under Rob’s leadership, the Eastern District of New York burnished its reputation as one of the country’s top law enforcement offices. We are confident that Rob’s outstanding experience, legal skills, and integrity will be an exceptional resource to clients seeking the very best corporate compliance and white-collar counseling.”

Capers received his JD from Albany Law School and his BA from New York University.
