Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll, LLP Chairman Arthur Makadon announced today that Beth Moskow-Schnoll, a former Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Delaware, has joined the firm's Wilmington office as a partner in its White Collar Litigation Group. 

"Beth was a terrific litigation associate here in the 1980s, and now she returns to us as a seasoned trial lawyer with a string of successes in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Delaware," Makadon said.  "You really cannot do better than that."

Ms. Moskow-Schnoll was an associate at Ballard's Philadelphia office prior to joining the U.S. Attorney's Office, where she worked for more than 17 years.  While there, she prosecuted a pharmaceutical fraud case that resulted in the largest financial penalty in District of Delaware history. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Ms. Moskow-Schnoll served as the Criminal Healthcare Fraud Coordinator, led a financial crimes working group, and prosecuted and investigated complex white collar cases with a focus on healthcare fraud and financial crimes, including cases involving bank and credit card fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, and identify theft.

Ms. Moskow-Schnoll is among six other lawyers who have joined Ballard with experience in the U.S. Attorney's Office and the second lawyer in six months to join the White Collar Litigation Group directly from a U.S. Attorney's Office. With Ms. Moskow-Schnoll's addition, Ballard is the first among major national law firms to have a white collar presence in Wilmington.  Her experience will benefit the firm's existing Delaware clients and, in particular, Delaware-based healthcare and higher education institutions. 

"The White Collar Litigation Group is expanding its presence in all of Ballard's offices nationwide, and I can't think of a better addition at this time than Beth to our Wilmington office," said Ronald A. Sarachan, partner in charge of the White Collar Litigation Group.  "Beth's long experience at the U.S. Attorney's Office and expertise in healthcare fraud will be a great asset."

"I am pleased to be returning to Ballard," said Ms. Moskow-Schnoll.  "Ballard's White Collar Litigation Group is known throughout the country.  I am eager to bring my experience with the U.S. Attorney's Office and begin working to strengthen and enhance the firm's already strong practice group.”
