Michael T. G. LongPartner
Too often, litigators put all their energy into “the fight” and lose sight of how to solve the underlying problem. Specializing in white collar criminal defense, Mike Long does not simply ask “How do we win this lawsuit?” but rather, “How do we advance your short- and long-term strategic goals, not only in this matter but in the big picture?” Recognized for his tenacity, creativity and sound judgment in the courtroom, Mike is a trusted advisor who knows when to fight and when to keep his clients out of court.
In his white collar practice, Mike conducts internal investigations and handles matters involving allegations of bribery and public corruption, criminal antitrust and international cartel violations, criminal tax evasion, mail and wire fraud, and health care fraud. His complex commercial litigation practice includes civil RICO claims, business divorce matters, and state and federal appeals. Mike also has extensive experience advising clients on “pay to play” political contribution restrictions and other aspects of campaign finance law.
Mike is deeply committed to giving back to the community, including providing pro bono legal services to victims of domestic violence and advocating for the reform of the prison, parole and juvenile justice systems. He is also an avid sports fan, cigar enthusiast and proud father of two boys. Prior to joining the firm, Mike served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable James R. Zazzali of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
