About Me

Caren Decter is a partner in FKKS's Litigation Group, focusing on commercial and intellectual property litigation, and white-collar defense.  Clients benefit from her skill in managing complex litigation aggressively and efficiently, as well as her responsiveness and ability to forge creative solutions to complicated problems before they grow into drawn-out litigation.

In her sophisticated white collar defense practice, Ms. Decter represents individuals and corporations in regulatory and criminal investigations involving allegations of accounting fraud, securities fraud, insider trading, antitrust violations, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. She frequently handles matters involving the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Department of Justice, various U.S. Attorney Offices and various District Attorney Offices.  She also assists clients in their responses to time-sensitive data security incidents and breaches.

In addition, Ms. Decter has a wide-ranging commercial and intellectual property litigation practice. She advises clients in the finance, legal, consumer goods, advertising, art, and media and entertainment industries — on "business divorces", ADA compliance, contract, copyright, trademark, false advertising, fraud and other matters. 

Ms. Decter takes on significant pro bono matters. The Anti-Defamation League awarded Ms. Decter and several of her colleagues the Edward Brodsky Founders Award in recognition of their work on an amicus brief arguing against President Trump’s travel ban. She also represents a Nepali woman seeking asylum.

Ms. Decter is on the Board of Directors for the New York County Lawyers Association’s Federal Courts Committee and a member of the New York City Bar Association’s Federal Courts Committee. She is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey. 

Prior to joining Frankfurt Kurnit, Ms. Decter was an attorney with Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, where she represented clients in complex commercial litigations. She also spent a year clerking for the Honorable Colleen McMahon of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
