NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrew Lankler, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office known for his representation of high-profile, white-collar criminal clients, joined Baker Botts today as a partner in the firm's New York office.
Lankler has represented a number of newsmakers, including television personality Greg Kelly and Bernard Madoff's auditor, David Friehling.
"Behind the headlines of the many cases Andrew has been involved in over the years is a skilled, talented and well-respected trial lawyer, and we are fortunate he has decided to join our firm," said Baker Botts Managing Partner Andrew Baker. "Andrew is known for saying little outside the courtroom concerning his clients, but taking care to make certain they are well-represented on the often-times highly publicized issues they face."
Lankler has tackled a number of criminal cases arising from the construction industry, including a racketeering case against a powerful carpenters' union leader, who was acquitted at trial, and a nearly three-month-long trial of a concrete testing laboratory and its executives charged with faking results for ground zero's signature skyscraper and other landmarks.
Lankler is a second-generation presence on the New York legal scene. His father, Roderick C. Lankler, was a special prosecutor investigating corruption in the city's criminal justice system in the early 1980s and later worked under Robert Fiske, the original independent counsel for the Whitewater probe during the Clinton administration.
Prior to joining Baker Botts, Lankler was the founding partner of Lankler, Carragher & Horwitz LLP. He spent six years in the 1990s working in the Manhattan District Attorney's office. He is a graduate of George Washington University and its law school.
Lankler is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He recently served as a member of the New York State White Collar Task Force which prepared a report recommending amendments to the New York fraud and corruption statutes.
