His practice has included work on a range of public and internal corporate investigations, from regulatory and internal investigations to representation of municipality plaintiffs.

Prior to joining Keller Postman, George worked for the Chicago office of Jenner & Block. At Jenner, he was an integral part of a small team of attorneys working in Zurich, Switzerland, on a cross-border regulatory matter. George assisted in the compliance investigation of a large international bank in connection with an IRS-mandated independent Monitorship of its cross-border banking activities and related compliance efforts, following the bank’s settlement with the IRS and New York Department of Financial Services (part of a broader settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice and federal regulators). Additionally, George worked with the New Jersey firm of Seeger Weiss, where he represented the cities of Chicago and San Francisco in prosecuting their claims against Purdue Pharmaceuticals as part of the nationwide opioid litigation.


"The world is filled with so many small and large wrongs upon which the light rarely if ever is shone. To the extent I, as a plaintiff’s attorney, can balance these very uneven scales in favor of wrongfully injured clients, I consider this a noble enterprise, and a life well spent."
