Fry Wernick is the former Assistant Chief of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Criminal Fraud Section and a former federal prosecutor who has a broad range of white collar experience. He led and supervised dozens of the Department’s most high-profile cases, including four of the largest-ever FCPA corporate criminal resolutions and dozens of individual prosecutions. Fry has investigated hundreds of cases, and he has substantial trial experience, having been the lead prosecutor in over 30 criminal trials, and he has handled over 20 appeals, including four oral arguments. Fry is one of the few former federal prosecutors who has actually prosecuted violations of the FCPA, and he knows how the Department of Justice prioritizes and investigates cases involving alleged violations of the FCPA’s anti-bribery, books-and-records, and internal controls provisions, as well as related fraud, money laundering statutes, and sanctions regulations. He conducts internal investigations and defends companies and individuals against government investigations into alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), anti-money laundering (AML) statutes, the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), sanctions, campaign finance laws, and other financial and corruption-related offenses. Fry also helps prepare and defend companies and individuals facing inquiries and investigations by Congress.
