Buckley announces Veena Viswanatha promoted to partner

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Mar. 27, 2019) – Buckley LLP announced that Veena Viswanatha has been promoted from counsel to partner.

Viswanatha represents corporate and individual clients in complex litigation and government investigations. Her work spans a wide variety of high-stakes litigation and investigations, including matters concerning alleged securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty and other shareholder disputes, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Over the past few years, she has worked on a number of noteworthy matters, including the representation of Universal Entertainment Corp. in litigation brought by Wynn Resorts, Ltd., resulting in a $2.6 billion settlement for UEC; the Navajo Nation in a landmark lawsuit against the U.S. government, which secured a $554 million settlement on behalf of the tribe; and numerous clients before the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“Veena has earned the confidence of her peers and the respect of our clients, through her legal skills, judgment, and responsiveness since she joined us as an associate in 2013,” said Managing Partner Benjamin B. Klubes. “We are proud to welcome her into the partnership.”

Viswanatha received her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2009 (cum laude), and her B.A. from Rutgers University in 2003 (magna cum laude).

With offices in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and London, Buckley LLP offers premier enforcement, litigation, compliance, regulatory, and transactional services to financial services institutions and early stage and leading fintech and technology companies, as well as venture capital and private equity funds, investment companies, and corporate and individual clients throughout the world.
