The National Law Journal has named Karen Popp to the 2021 edition of its “Crisis Leadership Trailblazers.” The select list highlights “agents of change” in the legal profession from across the country who have made significant marks on the practice, and have helped their communities, colleagues, or clients through times of crisis.
Karen co-leads the firm’s global White Collar: Government Litigation and Investigations practice. She is an internationally recognized anti-corruption and crisis management practitioner, and a “go-to” for several Fortune 50 corporations and their executives for high-stakes matters with complex, multi-jurisdictional legal, political, and public relations components. She is frequently at the forefront of explosive, highly sensitive crises, including those involving #MeToo, and racial, gender, and equality claims. Karen previously served as Associate White House Counsel to President Clinton, a lawyer in the Office of Legal Counsel at the U.S. Department of Justice, and an Assistant U.S. Attorney in New York.
