Colleen Conry, co-leader of Ropes & Gray’s Government Enforcement group, focuses her practice on white collar criminal defense and complex civil litigation. Colleen has extensive experience in representing multinational corporations and their executives in government investigations of potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, as well as the various securities fraud statutes. She recently worked with her team to obtain a judgment of acquittal at the close of the government’s case for a former Associate General Counsel at a major pharmaceutical company who was charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements in connection with an FDA inquiry into the company’s marketing practices.
Prior to joining the firm, Colleen served as a Senior Litigation Counsel in the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division in the United States Department of Justice. As a federal prosecutor, she investigated and tried several of the Department’s largest and most important white collar matters, including United States v. Nacchio, a four week insider trading jury trial of the former CEO of Qwest Communications International, Inc., relating to the sale of $52 million in stock, and United States v. Scrushy, a five month securities fraud and money laundering jury trial of the former CEO and Chairman of HealthSouth Corporation in connection with his alleged role in a $2.7 billion accounting scheme. In 2007, Colleen received the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director’s Annual Award for Outstanding Criminal Investigation.
Prior to joining the Criminal Division, Colleen served for seven years in the Commercial Litigation Branch of the Civil Division where she tried multiple cases involving claims against the government in excess of $3 billion.
