About Me

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.

Ms. Decter also advises clients on a range of issues involving privacy and data security. She frequently assists clients in their responses to time-sensitive data security incidents and breaches.

In addition, Ms. Decter has a wide-ranging commercial litigation and counseling practice. She advises clients in the finance, legal, consumer goods, advertising, art, and media and entertainment industries — on contract, copyright, trademark, fraud and other matters. Her recent work includes representation of an Academy Award-nominated director in litigation over documentary film rights; dismissal on summary judgment of a $30 million art fraud complaint; representation of a shareholder in a business dissolution; and dismissal of a contempt motion against an Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) provider.

Ms. Decter also represents well-known consumer brands and advertising agencies in false advertising matters. She recently helped a leading household goods e-tailer bring three cases against allegedly independent online review sites for their failure to disclose material relationships with our client’s competitors. And she successfully represented a top credit card company in a false advertising dispute before the National Advertising Division of the Better Business Bureau.

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 the co-chair of the New York County Lawyers Association’s Federal Courts Committee and a member of the New York City Bar Association’s Copyright & Literary Property Committee. She is admitted to practice in New York state courts and federal courts in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, as well as the United States Supreme Court.

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, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
