Todd Harrison is a litigation partner who concentrates in white-collar criminal defense, internal investigations, compliance matters, and complex civil litigation. Mr. Harrison is a highly experienced trial lawyer and investigator who has served as lead counsel in numerous jury trials, including high-profile and complex multi-defendant cases. Mr. Harrison has held lead or first-chair responsibility in more than 40 jury trials in both federal and state courts, and he has argued frequently before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Before joining Patton Boggs, Mr. Harrison served in the Department of Justice (DOJ) for nearly six years as a federal prosecutor in the Eastern District of New York, most recently as the deputy chief of the Violent Crimes and Terrorism Section. Previously, Mr. Harrison served as an Assistant District Attorney for five years in the New York County District Attorney’s Office under Robert M. Morgenthau. Mr. Harrison has handled many complex and high-profile matters involving a wide range of federal and state crimes, including conspiracy, money laundering, bank fraud, mortgage fraud, bankruptcy fraud, terrorist financing, racketeering, mail and wire fraud, obstruction of justice, false statements, murder, and public corruption.

As deputy chief of the Terrorism Section in the U.S Attorney’s Office, Mr. Harrison supervised a team of prosecutors responsible for the investigation and prosecution of the district’s terrorism and terrorist financing cases, which included money laundering, tax offenses, fraud, and other financial crimes. In that capacity Mr. Harrison dealt extensively with many international law issues, including extraterritorial use of federal law, the Bank Secrecy Act, and the USA PATRIOT Act, specifically the regulatory aspects of the anti-money laundering provisions. Mr. Harrison also handled several complex RICO prosecutions of organized gangs.

In 2003, the Department of Justice recognized Mr. Harrison’s outstanding trial work when he received the Director’s Award for Superior Performance by an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the trial of a major racketeering case.

Mr. Harrison is recognized as an authority in many areas of criminal law, and has been quoted in numerous publications regarding criminal matters. He has also lectured on various aspects of trial advocacy and courtroom techniques.
