John F. Hundley—a noted criminal and civil litigator who focuses on white collar defense—has joined Ballard Spahr in the firm's Washington, D.C. office, firm Chair Mark Stewart announced today.

With more than 25 years of experience, Mr. Hundley has handled cases involving money laundering, mail and wire fraud, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, antitrust violations, bribery and public corruption, and tax evasion. He also is regularly called upon to lead internal corporate investigations.

Mr. Hundley is known for his involvement in the representation of several high-profile clients including Monica Lewinsky, former FBI agent Robert Hanssen, and former legislative communications director Michael Scanlon. He has litigated cases across the country and maintains high-level security clearances, including Top Secret SCI.

"John is an outstanding addition to our national White Collar team," said Henry E. Hockeimer, Jr., who leads Ballard Spahr's White Collar/Internal Investigations Group. "He's an accomplished and well-regarded D.C. lawyer with decades of experience handling extremely sensitive and complex matters. Our clients require sophistication, depth, and range. John has all three."

Joining Mr. Hundley in the firm's Washington, D.C., office is Christopher A. Hatfield, an associate with experience in white collar defense, internal investigations, government investigations, and civil litigation.

Ballard Spahr's White Collar/Internal Investigations Group combines national scope with local experience in state and federal courts around the country. The Group includes former state and federal prosecutors from jurisdictions throughout the United States. Expanding the Group's capabilities in white collar defense and corporate investigations is a strategic priority for Ballard Spahr as the scope and complexity of government regulation and enforcement continue to grow.

"My new colleagues are some of the best in the business—known for their skill, agility, and strategic thinking. I'm thrilled to be joining their ranks and expanding this group's national footprint into the Washington corridor," said Mr. Hundley.
