Julian J. Moore, one of the chief investigators of the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption and a lead federal prosecutor in the Bernard Madoff case, has joined investigative consulting firm K2 Intelligence as a senior managing director.
Moore, 37, served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District from April 2006 to September 2013, most recently in the Securities and Commodities Fraud Unit, handling securities fraud, insider trading, bank fraud, money laundering and employee theft. He also was a co-lead counsel in investigating and prosecuting the Bernard L. Madoff Ponzi scheme.
After leaving the U.S. attorney’s office, Moore served as a New York state deputy attorney general and deputy chief of investigations for the Moreland Commission, an anti-corruption panel established by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last year and disbanded by him this spring.
Moore joined K2, which conducts investigations for corporations, law firms and individuals and advises clients on cyber security, data analytics, disputes, among other areas.
K2 worked with Moore when the firm was a consultant to the Moreland Commission.
Moore’s move is uncommon compared with the steady line of federal prosecutors heading to private practice in law firms. “I always thought my skill set would be best used going in–house, particularly at an investigative firm,” Moore said, adding he’s interested in advising companies on preventatives measures before problems arise.
