In his statement, Krickbaum expressed his enthusiasm about returning to the firm, “I am glad to be back at Winston, where I look forward to bringing my experience at Main Justice and multiple U.S. Attorney’s Offices to the firm’s government investigations, enforcement, and compliance practice.”

Krickbaum's background includes extensive experience in investigations, trials, and appeals, representing public and private companies, corporate officers, and individuals in white-collar criminal and regulatory matters, government and internal investigations, and complex commercial litigation.

Cardelle Spangler, managing partner of Winston & Strawn's Chicago office, emphasized the value Krickbaum brings to the team. “Marc’s strategic focus on internal investigations and white-collar defence, and his strong professional network across Illinois and the country, will be a significant value add to our practice and our team in Chicago,” Spangler said.

Winston Chair-Elect Steve D’Amore also highlighted Krickbaum’s expertise. “With his extensive experience in government and understanding of Winston’s culture, Marc will be a driving force to strengthen our roster of distinguished trial lawyers in the white-collar defence bar,” D’Amore stated. “Marc’s deep understanding of white-collar litigation aligns with our vision of adding top-tier litigation attorneys who bring insight and experience to client engagements.”

Krickbaum's return to Winston & Strawn is expected to enhance its capabilities in handling complex government investigations and white-collar defence.
