Biography

Anders Folk focuses his practice on securities litigation, white collar criminal defense, and government and internal investigations. Anders is an accomplished trial lawyer with extensive experience building complex cases and trying those cases to verdict.

Prior to joining the firm, Anders was an assistant United States attorney in the District of Minnesota. During his time at the United States Attorney’s office, Anders tried 15 jury trials to verdict, briefed and argued numerous cases before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and led complex, long-term grand jury investigations. Covering a wide range of matters, his cases included bank fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, money laundering, forged securities, immigration fraud, obstruction of justice, narcotics conspiracies, providing material support to foreign terrorist organizations and violent crime.

Also in his role as a federal prosecutor, Anders conducted extensive work internationally, often involving foreign governments, while conducting prosecutions and investigations in national security-related matters.

Prior to his work as an assistant United States attorney, Anders was a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps. He served as a judge advocate at Camp Pendleton, where he prosecuted and defended Marines and sailors in Marine Corps courts-martial and separation hearings. Anders litigated 16 jury trials to verdict at Camp Pendleton and, in 2004, was awarded Defense Counsel of the Year as the top Marine judge advocate in the Western Region of the United States.

Anders frequently speaks on matters related to cyber law and cyber security, national security law, counter-terrorism, and prosecutions and investigations of national security-related matters. In July 2011, he testified before the US House of Representatives Committee of Homeland Security. He also speaks every summer to the American Legion Minnesota Boys’ State convention.

In his free time, Anders serves as the chair of the board of the International Education Center, a nonprofit organization in Minneapolis, which provides first generation immigrants, refugees and their families with skills to become independent and productive members of the Twin Cities community.
