BSKS’s criminal defense practice is nationally recognized for its successful handling of complex high-profile criminal cases. Led by Roy Black, the criminal defense practice has repeatedly demonstrated its superb trial skills and meticulous preparation in defense of a wide variety of criminal cases and investigations, from murder to securities fraud, bank fraud, healthcare fraud, money laundering, internet sex crimes, mail and wire fraud, tax evasion, as well as in other areas. BSKS uses a highly focused team approach in preparation, investigation, motion practice and trial presentation to achieve the highest standards of defense.
BSKS’s civil litigation practice specializes in high-stakes “fight for your life” cases involving complex commercial litigation, contract, unfair competition claims, fraud, business torts, as well as civil forfeiture, white-collar business crime and related matters. The Firm’s clients include some of the world’s largest and most well-known multinational companies, real estate developers, celebrities and successful individual business persons.
BSKS has handled countless appeals, both at the federal and state level, all across the country, including having briefed, argued and won in the United States Supreme Court. The Supreme Court of the Unites States accepts so few cases to review and Firm partner Howard Srebnick has now been there twice in the past three years. Knowing that clear, well-researched legal argument is the key to prevailing on appeal, BSKS produces concise and forceful appellate briefs and delivers persuasive oral arguments. Often our appellate division’s support during pretrial and trial proceedings is critical early in the trial process to assist with identifying and preserving appellate issues at trial, and is a significant benefit in both criminal and civil matters.
