In that capacity, he represents a range of clients—financial institutions, real estate investment funds, professional athletes, startups, sports and entertainment companies, cable and internet service providers, government affairs firms, payment processors, executives, entrepreneurs, brokers, and civil servants, among them—in criminal and commercial litigation, regulatory matters, and internal and government investigations.

Day in and day out, Kraig works on matters before the Department of Justice (DOJ), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), New York County District Attorney’s Office, New York City Corporation Counsel, German Federal Cartel Office (Bundeskartellamt), and New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS). Likewise, he represents individuals and corporations in investigations before the SEC, international corporations before the DOJ Antitrust Division, and payment processing corporations before the FTC.

Before joining M&R, Kraig was associated with a midsize New York-based law firm, and before that was a law fellow with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Bank Supervision and Markets Division. During law school at Georgetown University, he clerked at the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia’s Fraud and Public Corruption Section; was a judicial extern to the Honorable Ketanji Brown Jackson, District Judge for the District of Columbia; and was a Staff Editor for the Georgetown Journal of Law & Public Policy.
