Rachel S. Li Wai Suen

Her practice focuses on the representation of individual and corporate clients in complex white collar criminal cases at all stages (investigations, trials, sentencing proceedings, and appeals). Rachel has tried multi-week criminal jury trials to verdict in federal district court in especially difficult white collar cases. She also has extensive experience advising clients in internal and government investigations, responding to Congressional subpoenas, and overseeing data collection, review, and production in complex white collar matters requiring substantial technological knowledge, management skills, and systems proficiency. Rachel has represented clients in a wide range of federal criminal matters involving alleged antitrust, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, securities fraud, tax fraud, honest services fraud, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and other offenses. She also has represented clients in enforcement matters and investigations before the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, primarily involving accountant liability issues.

Rachel received a Master of Laws degree from Harvard Law School in 2003, where she was a Frank M. Knox Fellow. In 2001, she received a Bachelor of Laws degree from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University in Toronto, Ontario, where she graduated first in her class and served as a law review editor.
