As an experienced trial lawyer, Keisha Coleman knows that the first step is to define what it means to win, whether that means early resolution, a jury verdict, or something in between. She is known for striking the right balance: between efficiency and high-quality work; pressing hard for the client and integrity toward everyone else involved in the case; and mastery of the legal issues and staying focused on the common-sense, practical effects of each action.
She uses her courtroom experience and broad litigation and investigatory capabilities to focus on complex financial services, business, securities, and white-collar criminal litigation and investigations. She has tried federal white-collar criminal cases and has brought several high-profile securities matters involving the SEC, FINRA, and the DOJ to successful resolution.
- Won jury verdict for factoring company in case alleging fraud and negligence against account debtor.
- Won jury verdict for Fortune 50 financial institution in case involving alleged unauthorized transfers.
- Won summary judgment for Fortune 500 financial institution in case alleging fraud and negligence against firm and its financial advisor.
