Biography

Eric M. Creizman is the founding member of the firm and an accomplished litigator. Prior to launching Creizman LLC, he practiced for 12 years at several elite international law firms: Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, Heller Ehrman LLP, and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. Since 2007, Mr. Creizman has served on the Criminal Justice Act Panel in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, where he is assigned to represent defendants and witnesses who cannot afford attorneys in federal criminal cases. Before practicing law, he graduated from Columbia Law School with high honors, earning the distinctions of James Kent Scholar and Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. Mr. Creizman had previously graduated from Columbia University, earning a Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, with departmental honors in Political Science. Mr. Creizman recently was recognized as a "rising star" in the area of white collar criminal defense by Super Lawyers New York.

Mr. Creizman has represented individual and corporate clients in all facets of white collar and federal criminal matters, including grand jury investigations, pre-indictment advocacy, motion practice and hearings, jury trials, sentencing, restitution, forfeiture, and post-conviction motions. The criminal matters he has handled have been brought under a wide variety of federal criminal statutes, spanning virtually the entire federal criminal code. In addition to white collar and federal criminal matters, Mr. Creizman also has defended corporations and individuals independently in regulatory investigations and litigation brought by the Securities & Exchange Commission, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Bureau of Industry of the Department of Commerce, and state attorneys general and regulatory agencies.

Mr. Creizman has unique experience representing financial institutions, corporations, and individuals in criminal, regulatory, and civil matters relating to the mortgage industry crisis, including investigations and litigation related to mortgage-backed securities, collateralized debt obligations, and credit default swaps. In addition, he has substantial experience in complex commercial litigation, as well as litigation involving officer/director indemnification and insurance coverage issues. Mr. Creizman has authored numerous publications on issues pertaining to white collar and federal criminal matters, securities regulation and regulatory enforcement, and securities litigation relating to the dramatic downturn in the non-prime mortgage market.
