Victoria Safran

Prior to forming Sentner Safran, I practiced for eleven years with New York City law firms, and ten years with the New York Attorney General's Office.  At the Attorney General's office, I investigated and prosecuted matters of public interest, including financial frauds, securities frauds, internet scams, deceptive business practices, false advertising and charities fraud. I investigated and successfully prosecuted two nationwide pyramid schemes involving securities fraud, and handled cases concerning economic fraud committed by brokers, businesses and attorneys involved in real estate transactions. I was appointed by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as a Public Integrity Officer in charge of public corruption complaints, served as a pro bono county Assistant District Attorney for Economic Crimes, and was awarded the Attorney General’s Lefkowitz Memorial Award for Outstanding Service.

Prior to joining the Attorney General’s office, I spent eleven years in private practice with New York City law firms, including eight years with Nixon Peabody where I handled a wide range of complex commercial litigation cases. I represented financial institutions, government agencies and commercial developers in cases of fraud in banking, mortgage and real estate transactions and multinational businesses in commercial disputes, intellectual property matters and questions of constitutional law. I have also represented employers in employment law disputes, and counseled them on employment matters.

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and the African Affairs Committee of the New York City Bar Association.  I am also an active volunteer for Lawyers Without Borders in connection with an ongoing project concerning the Caprivi treason trial in Namibia.

I am a graduate of Duke University School of Law and Carnegie Mellon University.
