Wendy Wu is a recognized national expert in cybercrime and data breach response, information
security, digital forensics, and intellectual property protection. She joins Pacific Intelligence & Cyber after leading the West Region Practice of Stroz Friedberg, an industry-leading global
cybersecurity and risk management firm.
Wendy was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, where she served in the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crimes Section. She also served as a member of the Los Angeles Electronic Crimes Task Force, an inter-agency cybercrime response organization. As an AUSA, Wendy conducted and supervised investigations and prosecutions of computer intrusions, extortionate denial of service attacks, computer and Internet fraud, criminal copyright infringement, theft of trade secrets, cyber exploitation of victims, financial fraud, and identity theft. Among her notable cyber cases, Wendy was lead counsel in the first criminal trial involving violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; prosecuted the operator of the now-defunct “revenge porn” website, isanyoneup[.]com; and supervised an international investigation involving the use of hired hackers to launch computer attacks against healthcare companies.
Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Wendy was a member of the White Collar Defense & Investigations Group of Proskauer Rose in New York and Los Angeles.
Lawrence has more than 30 years’ experience as a trial lawyer and as a manager and supervisor of complex criminal cases, including as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California where he served as Chief of the Criminal Division, Chief of the Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section, and Chief of the Public Corruption and Government Fraud Section.
As Criminal Chief, Lawrence supervised almost 200 federal prosecutors in the investigation and prosecution of all federal crimes. Lawrence supervised the Office’s landmark investigation and prosecution of corruption and civil rights abuses within the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. He has personally tried more than 50 federal criminal cases, obtaining guilty verdicts against both individuals and corporate entities for violations of statutes prohibiting contract procurement fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud, the illegal importation of goods in violation of Customs laws, including anti-dumping laws, money laundering, and trafficking in counterfeit goods, among others.
Lawrence was one of four attorneys who prosecuted the federal civil rights trial of LAPD officers charged with violating the Constitutional rights of motorist Rodney King, for which he received the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award. As part of the Department of Justice’s National Church Arson Task Force, he also tried and convicted individuals charged with burning an African American Church in Macon, Georgia. Lawrence served on DOJ’s Criminal Chiefs Working Group, which helps develop policies that govern the 90-plus U.S. Attorney’s Offices across the country, and as an instructor with the DOJ National Advocacy Center.
Early in his career, Lawrence prosecuted and defended criminal cases as a U.S. Air Force JAG and served as a state deputy public defender in Virginia.
