Thomas J. Krysa

Thomas J. Krysa is a partner and litigation lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP. Tom is based in the firm’s Denver office where he is a member of the Securities Enforcement & Litigation Practice. His practice focuses on advising clients in securities enforcement and litigation matters, government investigations, and complex commercial disputes. Tom, a former SEC senior officer and federal prosecutor, brings extensive government experience to the forefront to solve his clients’ problems short of government action, while at the same time preserving their interests should litigation and trial become necessary.

Tom represents his clients’ interests in matters involving the SEC, DOJ, FINRA, PCAOB, and CFTC, and other federal and state regulators and self-regulatory organizations. Tom conducts internal investigations for companies, audit committees, and boards of directors. He also represents clients in complex commercial litigation in federal and state courts.

While at the SEC, Tom served in several capacities — as a staff attorney, trial attorney, supervisory trial counsel, and ultimately as associate regional director in charge of enforcement and trials for the Denver regional office. In these roles, Tom litigated and supervised matters involving insider trading, financial fraud, broker-dealer and investment adviser misconduct, offering fraud, market timing, market manipulation, and auditor negligence. Prior to the SEC, Tom was a federal prosecutor for the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., prosecuting criminal tax and other white-collar matters in federal district courts.
