About

Founded in 1984, Lankler Siffert & Wohl (LSW) has leveraged its extraordinary reputation and longstanding record of excellence to build a powerhouse white collar litigation boutique. Smart, deliberate, highly ethical, and devoted to clients, we bring “the full package” (Chambers USA) to high-stakes commercial, regulatory, and white collar disputes.

Our clients come to us from the U.S. and abroad to solve their most delicate and complex legal problems—from nuanced negotiations to full-on legal battles. Among colleagues, LSW is regarded as “the lawyers’ lawyers,” both for our dedication to the craft of law and for our history of successfully representing other lawyers. Judges recommend their clerks for associate positions at the firm, knowing we will provide unrivaled mentoring and hands-on experience.

Our Mission

LSW provides superb, individualized, and cost-effective representation to its clients in high-stakes disputes in the commercial, regulatory, and white-collar criminal arenas.

The firm boasts a cadre of exceptional lawyers. Six partners are former U.S. federal prosecutors, and every associate is a former judicial law clerk. We have tried more than 100 cases and have “built a formidable trial strength and reputation” (Vault). The firm is known for its creative approach to problem solving and strategic exercise of the lawyer’s craft both inside and outside the courtroom.

Building on the successes of our founding partners, “pillars of the white collar bar” (Law360) Rod Lankler, John Siffert and Frank Wohl, LSW’s next generation of leaders remain true to the firm’s core values while looking ahead to the future.
