Scott Hulsey is a former high-ranking Department of Justice official and corporate Chief Compliance Officer who serves as counsel in white-collar criminal and regulatory enforcement matters. Mr. Hulsey represents individuals and institutions in complex international government investigations and trials, particularly those involving Asia, the Balkans and Central and Eastern Europe.

Mr. Hulsey also has deep experience representing clients in complex cross-border asset tracing and recovery campaigns. For example, he represented an international company in developing and executing a cross-border asset recovery strategy against assets and targets located in Europe, the Middle East and the U.S., among other jurisdictions, to recover over $300 million taken by fraud.

As a former federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, Mr. Hulsey was responsible for investigating and prosecuting complex criminal, money laundering and civil asset forfeiture matters against large-scale, international criminal organizations. Mr. Hulsey has successfully tried more than 60 federal and state cases over the course of his career.

In addition, Mr. Hulsey has deep familiarity with the Balkans and still works with clients from the region. In 2009-2010, while at DOJ, Mr. Hulsey was detailed to the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, initially providing technical advice to local prosecutors combating terrorism, and later serving as the Department’s top in-country representative.

Mr. Hulsey also brings deep and complementary corporate compliance experience, having served as the Chief Compliance Officer at General Electric Energy Connections, a company with over 45,000 employees and operating in more than 122 countries across the globe. As Chief Compliance Officer, he oversaw global legal and regulatory compliance, with a focus on antitrust, anti-bribery, anti-money laundering, and government contracts.
