Harold Malkin was featured in a May 2 Law360 article regarding the recent turnover in the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Department of Justice (DOJ). With the end of the current presidency drawing closer, a number of U.S. Attorneys appointed by President Obama, as well as other senior lawyers within the DOJ, are headed to private practice.

Back on the West Coast, Lane Powell nabbed a DOJ prosecutor with 22 years of experience to head the firm’s investigations and regulatory compliance team from its Seattle office.

Harold Malkin most recently served as deputy civil chief and chief of the Affirmative Civil Enforcement Unit at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

He led numerous multimillion-dollar civil and parallel civil and criminal investigations of government contract fraud as well as fraud involving healthcare providers, according to his new firm. Early in his career, he served six years as a trial attorney in the civil fraud section of the DOJ’s Civil Division.

In one False Claims Act case, Malkin prosecuted a laser manufacturer for alleged misrepresentations in connection with more than $15 million in military contracts.
