Andrew Boutros Joins Seyfarth Shaw

Andrew Boutros has joined Seyfarth Shaw as a litigation partner and co-chair of its White Collar, Internal Investigations, and False Claims team.


Boutros joins the firm from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago, where he successfully investigated and prosecuted some of the nation’s largest and most complex multi-district, international corporate fraud and cybercrime cases.

Boutros will be resident in Seyfarth’s Chicago and Washington, D.C. offices.

“We are excited to welcome such an outstanding trial attorney of Andrew’s caliber as he re-enters private practice after years of decorated service as a federal criminal prosecutor,” said Kate Perrelli, chair of Seyfarth’s Litigation department. “Andrew is an incredibly accomplished litigator who will be a tremendous asset to our clients and the firm as we continue to expand our white collar, FCPA and related practices.”

Boutros said that “public service is among the highest callings in the bar. It has been an extraordinary privilege to work on the prosecutorial frontlines bringing the tough cases that needed to be brought.”

“In doing so, I am grateful to have worked with some of the finest law enforcement agencies in the business, where together we made a difference for so many,” Boutros said.

Boutros is an authority on corporate deferred and non-prosecution agreements. He drafted and negotiated among two of the district’s first-ever corporate DPAs and is the author of the Department’s first customs-based supply chain corporate compliance program based on “reasonable country of origin inquiry,” the same standard found in Dodd-Frank’s conflict-mineral rules.

Boutros teaches an advanced course on corporate criminal prosecutions and investigations at the University of Chicago Law School.

He is the national co-founder and co-chair of the ABA’s Criminal Justice Section’s Global Anti-Corruption Committee and is a voting member of the ABA Criminal Justice Section Council.

Boutros is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law and Virginia Tech, where he graduated in-honors summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

Boutros also clerked for the Honorable Eugene E. Siler, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
