Ted Chung, a partner in Jones Day's Chicago Office who chairs the Firm's global Investigations & White Collar Defense Practice, was included in Crain's Chicago Business' "Notable Minorities in Accounting, Consulting & Law," a special editorial feature that profiles top minority accountants, consultants, and lawyers in the Chicago area.
Mr. Chung has deep experience conducting internal investigations, defending companies and individuals in criminal and regulatory proceedings, and counseling clients on compliance programs and issues. Throughout his career, he has helped participants in many different industries address some of their most complicated and sensitive problems. An accomplished trial lawyer, he has served as investigative and defense counsel in numerous high-profile criminal and administrative matters in the United States and across Latin America, Asia, and Europe. These matters have involved allegations of bribery and other corrupt conduct, including alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the Anti-Kickback Statute; financial and regulatory fraud (e.g., False Claims Act, tax, bankruptcy, federal programs); procurement fraud; accounting irregularities; violations of export/import and immigration laws; and violations of corporate policy.
Prior to joining Jones Day, Mr. Chung had a distinguished and multifaceted career in both private practice and public service, having served as: General Counsel to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, a partner at another major law firm, an Assistant U.S. Attorney and Deputy Chief in the Criminal Division of the Chicago U.S. Attorney's Office, the First Assistant Corporation Counsel in the city of Chicago's law department, and Deputy Chief of Staff (Public Safety) for Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley.
Crain's Chicago Business selected the "Notable Minorities in Accounting, Consulting & Law" based on their ability to effect change in their role and/or area of practice; their service as a role model or mentor to other accountants, consultants, or lawyers and/or their promotion of inclusive practices in the workplace; and their assumption of leadership positions outside of their own organizations, including professional organizations and civic/community service initiatives.
