New York-based white-collar defense and investigations firm Walden Macht & Haran is advancing recruitment plans in key East Coast markets, aided by the firm’s success in high-profile cases, which firm leaders say is bringing new clients to the 6-year-old boutique.

In December 2020, the 39-lawyer firm initiated an ambitious East Coast growth effort with the opening of an office in Philadelphia and the expansion of its office space in New York. Firm leaders said they’re scouting for potential lateral hires to help launch offices in Washington, D.C., and Wilmington, Delaware.
