Eric Creizman is one of the most sought-after trial lawyers in New York who focuses his practice on complex white-collar and securities enforcement defense. He brings a creative, high-energy approach to his representations, and his written submissions, oral arguments and cross-examinations have earned accolades from his colleagues, adversaries and judges.
