Not Guilty on All Counts for Thomas Barrack in Illegal Lobbying Trial

Congratulations to Thomas Barrack and his lawyers at Willkie Farr & Gallagher—Michael Shachter, Randall Jackson, Steven Ballew, Casey Donnelly, and Jordan Reisch—and Jim Bowman at O’Melveny for their resounding victory against foreign lobbying charges and claims that Mr. Barrack lied to federal officials.

Following a six-week trial before U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan in the Eastern District of New York, the federal jury acquitted Mr. Barrack and his co-defendant, Matthew Grimes, of allegations of acting as unregistered agents of a foreign government (the United Arab Emirates), obstruction of justice, and false statements claims.

DOAR’s consulting team, led by Scott Allen, Ray McLeod, Chad Lackey, and Maria Obregon, provided trial strategy consulting, jury research, trial graphics, jury selection, and trial presentation consulting over the course of several months and during the trial.

DOAR proves time and again that they are the nation’s best trial consultants.
