A fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, Reid Schar helps clients across a wide range of industries navigate complex issues at the intersection of investigations, litigation, regulation, and public perception. Reid’s experience as a former Assistant US Attorney and in high-visibility situations like the Chicago Blackhawks sexual assault investigation, the General Motors ignition switch recall investigation, and the New Jersey “Bridgegate” investigation has made him a trusted strategist for businesses and individuals of every size, in every industry.
Reid handles multibillion-dollar, multidistrict cases and class actions, and regularly represents clients before the DOJ, the SEC, state attorneys general, and multiple other regulatory bodies. He often handles complex, fact-intensive investigations involving all types of issues and allegations, including #MeToo, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, health care fraud, financial market manipulation, public corruption, cyber intrusions, and theft of trade secrets, among others. While Reid has invaluable courtroom experience, he is equally adept at counselling boards, committees, executives, and compliance officers on how to avoid or quickly resolve investigations and regulatory action.
