Keisha focuses her practice on sophisticated business, securities and financial services, and white-collar criminal litigation. Ms. Coleman is an experienced trial attorney who has represented and tried cases on behalf of individuals and both international and smaller, start-up companies.

Keisha has tried federal white-collar criminal cases and has been involved in several high-profile securities matters involving U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) enforcement, and parallel U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations.

She is particularly experienced with federal Lanham Act and state unfair and deceptive trade practices claims and claims brought to protect companies' trade secrets and competitive rights.

Her pro bono representation has included victims of domestic violence in court proceedings and serving on a team of attorneys seeking habeas corpus and other relief in a high-profile matter that required top-secret security clearance.
