Jonathan Haray is a litigation and compliance partner in DLA Piper's Washington, DC office. He represents corporations and individuals in government investigations, securities and regulatory enforcement matters, and white-collar litigation. He is an experienced courtroom lawyer who has tried more than three dozen jury trials. In 2020, Jon was recognized by the National Law Journal as a Criminal Law Trailblazer.  

Before joining the firm, Jon served as an Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel for the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), where he handled complex securities enforcement matters, including cases involving Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and securities fraud violations.

Jon previously served as Deputy Chief of the Fraud and Public Corruption Section at the United States Attorney's Office in Washington, DC, where he supervised more than 20 senior prosecutors and oversaw white collar investigations and litigation.

During more than a decade as an Assistant US Attorney, Jon prosecuted cases involving FCPA violations, False Claims Act violations, healthcare fraud, corporate and insurance fraud, money laundering and Bank Secrecy Act violations. He also prosecuted public corruption cases and led the successful prosecution of the first sitting DC Council member ever to be charged with felony corruption offenses, resulting in what the Washington Post described as “the most severe criminal sanction ever given a local elected official in the District.” Jon earlier served as an Assistant US Attorney in the Superior Court and Appellate Divisions of the US Attorney's Office, where he first-chaired five homicide trials, resulting in murder convictions for seven defendants, and argued six cases before the DC Court of Appeals.
