Mr. Lincenberg's success in the past five years in white collar cases has been remarkable. His two recent trials were against the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where Mr. Lincenberg defended the former CFO of a semiconductor manufacturer against a securities fraud indictment alleging revenue recognition and stock option backdating (United States v. Tomasetta and Hovanec). In the Spring of 2012, after hanging the jury on all 7 counts, the defense obtained a dismissal on 6 of 7 counts. In the retrial of the remaining conspiracy count held in the Winter of 2013, the defense again hung the jury.
He and his firm have successfully reversed U.S. Attorney decisions to indict and obtained non-prosecution agreements and declinations against major defense contractor and health care companies, conducted independent investigations for Broadcom, Yahoo, and numerous other technology, financial, industrial, and non-profit corporations. Currently, he represents several corporate presidents, general counsels, and other executives in FCPA, environmental, tax, and bank investigations.
In the securities field, Mr. Lincenberg currently represents companies and individuals in cases involving market manipulation, insider trading, and traditional 10b-5 and 17(a) investigations.
