Jeff Ifrah Named Local Litigation Star for Washington D.C. by Benchmark Litigation

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Mar 7, 2015) - Benchmark Litigation, the annual publication by Euromoney Institutional Investor, has awarded Jeff Ifrah the title of Local Litigation Star in the District of Columbia. This honor is traditionally awarded to professionals who were consistently recommended by clients and peers as reputable and effective litigators. Ifrah and fellow Local Litigation Stars are listed on the prestigious litigation guide's website along with their practice area and firm.

The nomination of Ifrah for Benchmark Litigation's Local Litigation Star title follows his success in some of the highest-profile white-collar cases in the country. A renowned interactive gaming attorney, he has represented prominent online poker sites such as PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker and offered his expert opinion on important matters such as New Jersey sports betting and FTC recommendations for mobile financial services. Ifrah Law has been involved in countless prominent cases, including a successful negotiation of an historic agreement between the Department of Justice, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.

This recent honor is by no means the first award or title Jeff Ifrah has to his name. During his early years as a trial lawyer and officer at the U.S. Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps, he received DOD Top Secret Clearance and Meritorious Service Award from the U.S. Army. Successfully defending well-known businesses in industries ranging from healthcare to technology has further earned him recognition such as a listing as Nightingale's Healthcare News Outstanding Fraud and Compliance Lawyer in May 2006, one of Gaming Intelligence Magazine's Hot 50 List for 2012, and a Chambers USA's Gaming and Licensing litigator for 2015.

Awards and titles aside, Ifrah has been praised by his peers for numerous publications over the span of 20 years. In addition to co-authoring the LexisNexis Treatise Federal Sentencing for Business Crimes, his works have been published and acclaimed in the National Law Journal, AHLA Health Lawyers News, the BNA Health Care Fraud Reporter, and the American Criminal Review. He also uses Ifrah Law's three blogs, CrimeInTheSuites.com, IfrahOniGaming.com and FTCBeat.com, to voice his thoughts on white-collar criminal defense, iGaming, and FTC and State AG enforcement actions respectively.

Widely recognized for his legal expertise and excellence, Jeff Ifrah is a dedicated lawyer who is well known for quickly resolving contentious matters by applying good commercial sense and legal thinking. An honest and committed professional, he has worked with the U.S. Army's Judge Advocate General, the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command at Fort Monmouth, and U.S. Attorney's office in New Jersey. After establishing his own law firm in 2009, he has been offering his expertise and the skills of a group of well-versed professionals in the areas of ecommerce, financial services, healthcare, and government contracting.
