Douglas Jensen has more than 30 years’ experience as a white-collar defense attorney, commercial litigator, criminal prosecutor and trial lawyer.
He has successfully represented executives and corporations caught up in the major criminal and regulatory investigations pursued over the past two decades by the US Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other government agencies. In all but a small number of cases Doug’s clients have avoided the filing of any criminal charges, and in many instances have avoided regulatory charges. Doug has also obtained successful results for his clients in high-stakes civil litigations and arbitrations, conducted internal investigations and received appointments as an independent monitor for corporations subject to government investigations.
Prior to joining Sher Tremonte, Doug was a partner at a leading global law firm, and before that was co-founder and managing partner of a prominent boutique white collar defense firm. Earlier in his career, Doug served for 11 years as Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of New York, where he was a member of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force. He held multiple supervisory positions in the US Attorney’s Office, including that of Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division, and Chief of the Narcotics Unit. Doug tried or supervised dozens of jury trials to successful verdict, including securities fraud, money laundering, narcotics and mail and wire fraud cases.
