Vincent Russo’s practice focuses on business and government litigation as well as regulatory and compliance matters. He is also a leading practitioner in the fields of election law and voting rights, securities law, and public policy. Vincent has handled a number of government investigations and managed numerous emergency situations impacting his clients.

Vincent most recently served as the General Counsel or Chief Legal Advisor to Georgia Secretaries of State Brian Kemp (2010-2013) and Karen Handel (2008-2009), and he oversaw the State’s regulation of securities, broker-dealers, agents and investment advisers as the Assistant Commissioner of Securities (2011-2013).

He has also advised the Georgia Secretary of State in several administrative proceedings involving challenges to the qualifications and eligibility of candidates to hold office.

As Assistant Commissioner of Securities, Vincent has directed numerous investigations and enforcement actions under Georgia’s securities laws and charitable solicitation laws. He also led the development of Georgia’s current state securities regulations, including efforts to promote crowdfunding initiatives and funding for start-up and small businesses in Georgia.

In his business litigation practice, Vincent represents individuals and corporate clients in commercial disputes involving business torts, contract claims, corporate and partnership disputes, securities fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty, among other disputes.
