Carlos Ortiz Joins Blank Rome as Partner

Former Federal Prosecutor and veteran Litigator, Carlos Ortiz, has joined Blank Rome as Partner in the White Collar Defense and Investigations group. He is based in the international law firm’s New York and Princeton, NJ offices.

Previously, Ortiz served for five years at the Department of Justice’s Tax Division and ten years at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey. Before coming over to Blank Rome, Ortiz served as Partner in the white collar and litigation practices at Edwards Wildman.
