Dorsey & Whitney LLP continues the expansion of the Phoenix office and its nationally recognized Government Solutions & Investigations group with the arrival of former federal prosecutor Seth Goertz, the law firm announced today. 

Seth comes to Dorsey from the United States Department of Justice, where he was Assistant U.S. Attorney, and he focused on complex legal cases in the financial services area, including matters involving cybercrime, money laundering, bribery, computer hacking, and kickback schemes, among others. His unique background and extensive experience leading high-profile matters through investigation, prosecution, and trial will assist companies and individuals in high-stakes white collar criminal fraud investigations, prosecutions, and civil enforcement actions. 

Seth received his J.D. from University of Iowa College of Law, his M.A. from Wheaton College Graduate School, and his B.A. from University of Arizona.

“We are excited to welcome Seth to our Phoenix office. Seth advances the strategic growth of the firm’s Government Solutions & Investigations team by adding white-collar defense and government investigation capabilities in Phoenix. Seth’s experience in the cybersecurity and cybercrimes space as well as in general commercial litigation will benefit our clients across many key practice areas,” said Scott Jenkins, Dorsey’s Phoenix office head. “Seth is another important addition to our team in Phoenix, where we are continuing to add key talent, as demonstrated by Seth’s arrival and the recent additions of Finance & Restructuring partner Kate Moore, Real Estate partner Michael Fritz, and Litigation partner Nicole Stanton.”

“I am excited about the opportunity to join Dorsey and look forward to contributing to the firm’s work across the country in the investigations and white collar defense space, as well as expanding our reach in the Arizona market,” said Seth Goertz. “I look forward to using my experiences as an assistant U.S. Attorney to help our clients who are faced with investigations by federal and state agencies.”
