Anjan Sahni is a highly experienced litigator who has overseen some of the most significant white collar and securities fraud prosecutions in recent years. Mr. Sahni rejoined the firm after more than a decade as a federal prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where he recently served as Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force and Co-Chief of the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit.

As Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force, Mr. Sahni supervised investigations and prosecutions involving insider trading, accounting fraud, corporate fraud, market manipulation, commodities fraud, investment advisory fraud, violations of the Bank Secrecy Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and fraud involving complex financial instruments. In that role, he regularly coordinated criminal investigations with an array of different civil regulators, including the SEC, CFTC, Federal Reserve, FINRA, OCC, FinCEN and NYDFS.

Prior to supervising the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force, Mr. Sahni served as the Co-Chief of the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. In that role, he oversaw investigations and prosecutions involving domestic and international terrorism, arms trafficking, counterintelligence, piracy, money laundering, violations of export controls and economic sanctions laws, and global narcotics trafficking. He was the co-prosecutor of notorious arms dealer Viktor Bout and oversaw the successful prosecution of would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.

After receiving his law degree from Yale Law School, Mr. Sahni clerked for the Honorable Pierre N. Leval of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, after which he joined WilmerHale as a litigation associate.
