United States: Announcing The Arrival Of Anjan Sahni
Last Updated: June 18 2015

Anjan Sahni has rejoined WilmerHale as a partner in the firm's New York office. Mr. Sahni is a highly experienced litigator who has overseen some of the most significant white-collar and securities fraud prosecutions in recent years. He rejoins the firm after more than a decade as a federal prosecutor in the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, where he most recently served as Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force and, previously, as Co-Chief of the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit.

As Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force, Mr. Sahni supervised investigations and prosecutions involving insider trading, accounting fraud, corporate fraud, market manipulation, commodities fraud, investment advisory fraud, violations of the Bank Secrecy Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and fraud involving complex financial instruments. In that role, he regularly coordinated criminal investigations with an array of civil regulators, including the SEC, CFTC, Federal Reserve, FINRA, OCC, FinCEN and NYDFS.

Prior to supervising the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force, Mr. Sahni served as Co-Chief of the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit, in which capacity he oversaw investigations and prosecutions involving domestic and international terrorism, arms trafficking, counter-intelligence, piracy, money laundering, violations of export controls and economic sanctions laws, and global narcotics trafficking. He was the co-prosecutor of notorious arms dealer Viktor Bout and also oversaw the successful prosecution of would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.

Mr. Sahni began his legal career as an associate at WilmerHale in 2002. He earned his JD from Yale Law School in 2001 and his BA from Emory College, summa cum laude, in 1998. After graduating from law school, he clerked for the Honorable Pierre N. Leval of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
