Keir N. Dougall is a former federal prosecutor, a former white collar partner at a major national law firm and a seasoned trial lawyer.  He has represented corporate and individual clients in matters involving a broad range of issues including:

He regularly represents clients in court and before federal and state law enforcement authorities including the United States Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Attorney Generals’ Offices of New York and other states.

Mr. Dougall served for nearly ten years as an Assistant United States Attorney in New York and Philadelphia.  He served as the Criminal Health Care Fraud Coordinator for the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York and was responsible for developing and supervising the District’s investigations and prosecutions of health care fraud offenses.  He provided training to the FBI, the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the United States Department of Labor on health care fraud and related issues and was a frequent speaker on those issues.  Mr. Dougall was also a member of the District’s Public Integrity Section where he conducted white collar, tax and bank fraud, extortion, obstruction of justice, public corruption and corporate criminal investigations and prosecutions.

As a federal prosecutor in New York, Mr. Dougall conducted a month-long jury trial, working with victim pharmaceutical corporations, which resulted in the conviction of an individual who sold millions of dollars worth of counterfeit, trademark infringing and contaminated injectable fertility drugs and contaminated Parkinson’s disease drugs.  The Attorney General of the United States commended his “outstanding work” and “superlative efforts” in leading a labor racketeering investigation of corrupt union representatives and officials that netted the conviction of over three dozen defendants and culminated in the conviction, after a two month jury trial, of a former union vice president in a sprawling fraud, money laundering and RICO scheme.

Prior to his work as a federal prosecutor in New York, Mr. Dougall was an Assistant United States Attorney in the Civil Division of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania where he conducted a number of civil trials and litigated, among other things, civil health care fraud and Superfund environmental cleanup cases.

Mr. Dougall graduated cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School in 1991, where he was editor in chief of the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform.  He received Bachelor of Science and Master of Electrical Engineering Degrees from Cornell University in 1987.  He is admitted to practice in New York and before the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and the United States Courts of Appeal for the Second and Third Circuits.  He is also a member of the New York City Bar Association.
