Hands-on Counsel, Gloves-off Litigation
When the government comes knocking, clients turn to the team at Ifrah Law for successful defense strategies. Because clients who are at the top of their fields come to us, we have seen that success can sometimes bring unwanted attention, and we are well respected for our ability to successfully manage, navigate and negotiate federal investigations.
We formed Ifrah Law for the express purpose of bringing the sophistication of a large firm and the personalized service of a smaller firm to clients who have critical matters.
Our attorneys include a former special assistant U.S. Attorney, a former attorney in the Counterterrorism Section of the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, a former FTC attorney, and a number of highly trained veterans from some of the nation’s largest and most respected law firms. Founder Jeff Ifrah is a frequent speaker, author and commentator on white collar crime issues and the co-author of the book Federal Sentencing for Business Crimes, the only complete treatise on the topic. As a result, we have established relationships and credibility with federal prosecutors and investigators in such agencies as the Justice Department, the FTC, SEC, and DOD, among others.
Jeff Ifrah is often quoted as saying that he wants to change the way clients think about lawyers, and Ifrah Law is doing that by:
* 24/7 availability to our clients and absolute responsiveness to their calls, questions and requests
* Maintaining our high credibility with an extreme attention to detail
* Truly listening to our clients and forming a partnership with them
* Having a broad and deep understanding of the government’s thinking and strategies
* Converting our experience to client success
* Delivering creative thinking to overcome obstacles and achieve client goals
Why Ifrah Law
Why do high profile clients turn to Ifrah Law when the government comes knocking? The answer comes down to three qualities that separate us from other attorneys and law firms: We are highly experienced but we don’t let that dull our creativity. We provide excellent client service and know how to partner with strong, successful individuals. And we are well-known, respected and sometimes feared advocates for our clients’ interests.
Experienced and Creative – From the credentials of our founder – a former U.S. Army officer and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney – to those of our newest associate – an eight-year veteran of the FTC – our experience could speak for itself. But what has earned us the attention of mainstream media, our peers at the nation’s largest and most respected law firms and many successful business leaders, is our creativity, our insight and our ability to consistently find ways to achieve our clients’ goals. Not only do we stay on top of current trends in enforcement and case law, we write and provide expert analysis about those trends in leading legal and business publications and conferences.
Client-Service Focused Attorneys – Too often, we hear stories of attorneys who don’t timely return calls or e-mails or don’t seem to understand the urgency of a situation from the client’s point of view. At Ifrah Law, we are personally available to our clients 24/7. Our client focus extends to forming a close partnership with our clients, listening to them and truly paying attention to what they say, and putting the highest priority on meeting our clients’ needs.
Respected Advocates – Our good relationships with government prosecutors, combined with our experience and comfort with the high stress levels that can characterize a government investigation, make us a powerful ally for our clients. We make better client advocates because we are exceptionally focused and detail oriented; we are better writers; we have a better understanding of precedent, facts and options; and we understand how not to over-lawyer a case.
