Biography

Joan is a member of Ropes & Gray’s governing Policy Committee and served for many years as head of the firm’s Government Enforcement practice.

Joan has over two decades of experience representing companies and individuals in white collar criminal investigations and trials, as well as complex civil litigation and administrative enforcement matters. She represents clients across a range of industries.

Recently, she was lead trial counsel for Kurt Mix, a drilling engineer, in a two-count felony obstruction of justice case related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Mr. Mix was indicted in May 2012 and went to trial in December 2013 in federal court in the Eastern District of Louisiana. In November 2015, in response to a defense submission and three weeks before a scheduled re-trial, the Department of Justice dismissed all obstruction of justice charges against Mr. Mix.

Throughout her career, Joan has been dedicated to public service—in government, in community organizations and in leadership roles on diversity and inclusion initiatives in the legal profession.

Prior to joining Ropes & Gray, Joan served as an Assistant United States Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Appeals Unit in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. As a federal prosecutor, she investigated and tried nearly a dozen cases involving a wide range of criminal conduct, including obstruction of justice, financial fraud, sexual exploitation, racketeering and organized crime.

At Ropes & Gray, Joan has been active in pro bono work. She also has chaired the firm's Diversity Committee, served as the Policy Committee liaison to the firm’s pro bono committee and participated actively in the Women’s Forum.
