Vincent Russo is a partner at the law firm of Robbins Ross Alloy Belinfante Littlefield in Atlanta, Georgia. His practice focuses on business and government litigation as well as regulatory enforcement and public policy. Vincent represents plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of litigation in federal and state courts, including Georgia’s specialized Business Court in Fulton County, involving sophisticated corporate and securities-related litigation, contract and commercial disputes, and real estate litigation. He also represents clients in government investigations and administrative proceedings, in addition to arbitration/mediation forums, generally involving compliance with securities laws or other complex regulatory issues. Vincent is a leading practitioner in the field of election law and has represented clients in voting rights litigation, candidate challenges, government investigations, and various campaign finance matters.

Prior to joining the firm, Vincent was the General Counsel to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, where he served as chief legal counsel to Secretaries of State Brian Kemp and Karen Handel. Vincent also oversaw the State of Georgia’s regulation of securities, broker-dealers, and investment advisers as the Assistant Commissioner of Securities (2011-2013). As the principal legal advisor to the Georgia Secretary of State, Vincent oversaw litigation and provided legal counsel and legisla­tive expertise on issues involving securities and corporate law, regulatory compliance, election law and voting issues, open records laws, profes­sional licensing, and charitable organizations. He also directed investigations for violations of Georgia securities law and led the development of Georgia’s current securities regulations, including Georgia’s intrastate crowdfunding exemption - the Invest Georgia Exemption.

Vincent has represented and advised a diverse group of clients, from public companies to investment funds, asset managers, strategic investors, start-ups, and government entities. Vincent also has experience serving as outside general counsel to clients involved in business transactions that implicate federal and state securities laws and other regulatory schemes, and has managed numerous emergency situations impacting his clients. Unlike lawyers who follow the same model for every situation, Vincent’s creativity and strategic thinking gives his clients the extra margin necessary for success.

Vincent is active in the community and the legal profession, and he is a frequent speaker on current issues in election law and securities law. Vincent has also served as a court-appointed Special Master by the Honorable Shawn Ellen LaGrua for real estate title disputes in Fulton County, Georgia.

Vincent is a graduate of Emory University School of Law, where he was the recipient of the James C. Pratt Memorial Award, selected to the Order of the Barristers, and served as the Director of the Emory Moot Court Society (2005-2006). Vincent earned undergraduate degrees in Economics and Political Science from Louisiana State University and was the recipient of the Chancellor’s Medal of Distinguished Service.
