Gerald L. Shargel



Partner Gerald L. Shargel is one of the most accomplished and well-known defenders in serious criminal cases both in New York and nationally. The New Yorker said he is considered “one of the most brilliant criminal defense attorneys in America… quite possibly the finest of his generation.”

Over more than 40 years, Mr. Shargel has defended numerous high-profile cases at the investigative, trial, and appellate levels. His cases cover a broad array of white-collar and non-white-collar crimes, and he has litigated matters before the most prominent judges in the key courts in New York.

Mr. Shargel was primarily a solo practitioner prior to joining Winston & Strawn and adding his unique experience in high-stakes trials to Winston’s existing litigation and white collar defense practices.

Mr. Shargel received B.A. from Rutgers University in 1966 and a J.D. in 1969 from Brooklyn Law School. He was later honored as a Brooklyn Law School “Alumnus of the Year.”
