Raymond M. Brown, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, will lecture at the seminar “Justice at Dachau: The Trials of an American Prosecutor,” to be presented on April 19, 2017 from 9:00am – 12:35pm by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) at the Wilshire Grand in West Orange, NJ. This important program was first presented last year and is being repeated due to strong demand.
Mr. Brown will be joined for the lecture by Joshua M. Greene, author of the book “Justice at Dachau: The Trials of an American Prosecutor.” Together they will explore a critical event in the post-Holocaust period: the largest yet least known war crimes trial in history. The story is told through the eyes of Col. William Denson, chief prosecutor, a Southern lawyer and officer determined to achieve righteous judgments against Nazi murderers but unprepared for the procedural and psychic obstacles he would encounter during more than two years of exposure to the horrors of the Holocaust.
Mr. Brown, a dedicated human right activist, is co-founder of the International Justice Project, which works to combat genocide in the 21st century. At the firm, Mr. Brown concentrates his practice in white collar criminal defense, international human rights issues, internal investigations and complex commercial litigation. He has defended clients in state and federal courts and before administrative tribunals. He is a leading figure in the developing area of law related to the regulation and enforcement of business requirements for human rights compliance. He has appeared in courts in twelve states and has conducted investigations in the U.S. and in Kenya, El Salvador, the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, the Bahamas, Colombia and Sierra Leone. His international experience includes qualifying as Counsel before the International Criminal Court in The Hague and serving as Co-Lead Defense Counsel at the Special Court for Sierra Leone.
