During Steve Peikin’s eight-year tenure as an assistant United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, he tried 16 felony cases, practiced extensively before the 2d U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and eventually became the youngest-ever deputy chief of the securities and commodities fraud task force for that office. He became well known for his work as lead prosecutor in U.S. v. Frank Quattrone, the successful investigation and prosecution of a former Credit Suisse First Boston banker accused of obstruction of justice and witness tampering. Peikin was the lead prosecutor in U.S. v. Svoboda and Robles, where a former NationsBank credit officer and an accountant were prosecuted for one of the largest-scale insider-trading schemes in recent history. He was also lead prosecutor in an industrywide investigation of initial public offering allocations at investment banks. He handled the investigation and sentencing of investment manager Alan Bond, a former television commentator, convicted of bribery and trade-allocation schemes that defrauded pension funds of more than $70 million. In U.S. v. Kyprianou and Poyiadjis, Peikin worked with the Securities and Exchange Commission to seize more than $180 million in insider-trading proceeds that had been placed in bank accounts in the British dependency Isle of Man by former co-CEOs of AremisSoft Corp. After being promoted to deputy chief of the securities and commodities task force in 2002, he oversaw high-profile prosecutions including WorldCom Inc. and Adelphia Communications Corp. Since joining Sullivan & Cromwell in late 2004, he has focused his practice on white-collar defense, internal investigations and regulatory enforcement matters.
