Adam Baker is a partner in the firm's government investigations group
King & Spalding has hired Adam Baker to join the firm’s special matters and government investigations team as a partner in the New York office. Baker most recently served as assistant US attorney in the US attorney’s office in the district of New Jersey.
Baker will focus his practice on guiding healthcare and financial services clients through government and internal investigations, white-collar litigation and regulatory matters.
As assistant US attorney, Baker served as a member of the health care fraud/opioid abuse prevention and enforcement unit in the US attorney’s office in the district of New Jersey, where he led and participated in numerous large-scale investigations and prosecutions in the healthcare space. Previously, he was a partner at Alston & Bird in New York and focused on representing financial institutions in investigations and related enforcement actions.
“Adam has experience in multiple strategic areas for us, including the life sciences, healthcare and financial industries, and provides additional strength to serve our growing set of clients based in the New Jersey and New York region,” said Mark Jensen, head of the firm’s special matters and government investigations team. “In addition to his strong investigations and litigation background, Adam brings an enthusiasm and team-focused mentality that make him a great cultural fit for our practice and our firm.”
Baker is the fifth partner to join the firm’s special matters and government investigations team in the past three months.
“Serving as a federal prosecutor has been one of the most challenging and rewarding professional experiences of my life, and I am excited to return to private practice to put that experience to work guiding healthcare and financial services clients through their complex investigations, white collar, and regulatory matters,” said Baker. “I’m particularly excited to be part of this collaborative team and to contribute to the growing New York office and the firm’s top-tier investigations practice.”
