PHILADELPHIA – September 13, 2018 – Buchanan boosts its white-collar and cybersecurity capabilities with the addition of Adam M. Saltzman, former Assistant United States Attorney, who joins as counsel in the firm’s Philadelphia office. Prior to joining Buchanan, Saltzman served in the National Security & Cybercrime Section, Economic Crimes Section, and General Crimes Section in the Middle District of Florida, as well as the Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property (CHIP) coordinator for the Tampa Division. In this capacity, Saltzman investigated and prosecuted federal crimes, including healthcare fraud, tax fraud, money laundering, violations of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, cybercrime cases and others.
Saltzman also spent seven years in private practice at a global law firm focusing on criminal and civil matters, internal corporate investigations, federal government investigations and securities enforcement proceedings.
“We are committed to enhancing our talent and strengthening our capabilities whenever possible and are thrilled to add Adam to our Litigation and Cybersecurity teams. His experience in white-collar crime, cybercrime and healthcare fraud is a tremendous asset to our clients who face increasing threats in these areas,” said David L. Gordon, shareholder and co-chair of Buchanan’s Litigation section.
“White-collar, healthcare fraud investigations, GDPR and privacy are areas of growth for us and Adam provides additional depth to meet the needs of our clients,” added H. Marc Tepper, shareholder and head of Buchanan’s Philadelphia office.
“I was drawn to Buchanan because of their national reputation, the quality of people I met and the areas where they're looking to expand,” said Saltzman. “My prosecutorial and defense work in white-collar crime and cybersecurity enables me to significantly add to the great work that Buchanan is already doing. I also appreciate their strong Florida presence given my connections to Tampa and surrounding areas.”
Saltzman received his J.D. from Fordham University Law School and graduated with a B.S.E from the University of Pennsylvania.
