Before starting this boutique firm, Martha Boersch led her own Bay Area white collar defense practice and was previously a partner in the highly-regarded international law firm of Jones Day LLP.  She has become known for her effective courtroom advocacy on behalf of clients facing serious government charges.  Eugene Illovsky worked for almost 20 years as a securities, antitrust, and white collar partner in the Bay Area at the leading global firm of Morrison & Foerster LLP.  There he developed a track record of delivering innovative legal solutions that helped protect clients’ careers and reputations.  Between them, they have handled scores of  trials and hearings before juries and judges as well as dozens of federal appeals.

Martha and Eugene have almost twenty combined years of government experience. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney in San Francisco, Martha investigated and prosecuted white collar crimes including securities fraud, organized crime, international money laundering.  She supervised the securities fraud unit and the organized crime strike force, and the Department of Justice awarded her the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award.  As an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Sacramento, Eugene investigated and prosecuted many kinds of white-collar offenses, from investment fraud and intellectual property theft, to political corruption and tax evasion.  The Department of Justice gave him a national award for Superior Performance, and the Attorney General and the Director of the FBI each gave him commendations.

The service philosophy of Boersch & Illovsky LLP is to deliver: creative analysis and deep legal knowledge; aggressive and innovative representation in trial; pragmatic strategies; fresh and bold tactics; the benefits of broad government and private practice experience; and personalized, efficient, and value-minded service.
