John Keker Speaks at the National Institute on White Collar Crime


John Keker will speak before the American Bar Association's National Institute on White Collar Crime. Mr. Keker's panel is entitled "Lessons Learned from Recent Trials."

Over the past two decades, this institute has been attended by federal and state judges and prosecutors, other law enforcement officials, defense attorneys, corporate in-house counsel and members of the academic community. The faculty regularly includes some of the leading members of the white collar bar in the United States and abroad. Among the audience are nationally renowned lawyers as well as many who are beginning to concentrate in the white collar area. The institute is known for the exceptional quality of its publication, the panelists’ presentations, the valuable updates on new developments and strategies, as well as the rare opportunity to meet colleagues in this field, renew acquaintances and exchange ideas.

Since founding the firm with law school classmate Bill Brockett in 1978, John Keker has built a reputation as one of the country's top trial lawyers. Four decades of jury trials in white collar criminal cases, complex commercial and intellectual property cases, antitrust and securities cases, even palimony cases, establish him as the lawyer clients turn to for their most important and high-profile litigation problems.

The American Lawyer described him as “a giant of the IP trial bar.” The California Lawyer said he was “the lawyer other attorneys would turn to if they were in trouble.” The San Francisco Chronicle called him “the Number One Lawyer in the Bay Area,” and the California State Bar inducted him into its “Litigation Hall of Fame.” The National Law Journal named him as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential Lawyers in the United States.”
