Byung J. (“BJay”) Pak is a highly accomplished trial lawyer and litigator, a former federal prosecutor, and a retired three-term state legislator. Mr. Pak primarily focuses on representing clients facing critical situations such as high stakes litigation of all kinds, civil and criminal investigations, and confidential information leaks. He has experience working with nearly every major agency of the federal government, including but not limited to the FBI, IRS, DHS, HHS-OIG and the Justice Department. From his former role as a policy maker, Mr. Pak has gained valuable insights into all areas of government and uses his unique combination of knowledge and experience to assist his clients in developing an appropriate strategy to minimize potential liability and, if necessary, aggressively battle the government at trial.

For his litigation and trial skills, Mr. Pak is listed in the highly selective and peer reviewed Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business and is recognized as a Georgia "Super Lawyer" by Atlanta Magazine, as well as a “Legal Elite” by Georgia Trend Magazine.

Previously, Mr. Pak was an equity partner at another American Lawyer 100 firm, and also served as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Georgia for approximately six years, where he handled cases ranging from securities fraud, computer intrusion, healthcare fraud, financial fraud, Bank Secrecy Act and money laundering, export control violations (EAA, AECA/ITAR, TWEA, and IEEPA), and government contracting fraud.

During his time as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, he was the lead prosecutor in a corporate espionage case involving a conspiracy to steal and sell The Coca Cola Company's valuable trade secrets to Pepsi Co. After supervising the FBI undercover investigation, Mr. Pak took the case to trial and secured a conviction of all defendants. The case received worldwide media attention and was featured on MSNBC in an episode titled: “Corporate Greed: Secrets for Sale." As a result, Mr. Pak often advises corporate victims whose trade secrets have been stolen.

Mr. Pak graduated summa cum laude from the University of Illinois College of Law. He is a Certified Public Accountant (Registered in Illinois), and served a judicial clerkship with the Honorable Richard Mills, of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois, from 1998-2000.
