Derick Vollrath

Counsel

Derick Vollrath is a Government Investigations and Business Litigation attorney in Marcus Neiman Rashbaum & Pineiro LLP’s Fort Lauderdale office. For six years, he has represented businesses and individuals in some of their most sensitive litigation matters, including regulatory, tax, and criminal investigations by the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Prior to that, he served the federal judiciary for four years as a judicial clerk. He is a graduate of Duke University School of law, where he served as an editor of the Duke Law Journal.

Within his Government Investigations practice, Mr. Vollrath’s representative matters span the white-collar space. Against the DOJ and the IRS, his representative matters include litigation and successful resolution of both civil and criminal cases involving the failure to report foreign bank accounts and overseas trust transactions on required FBAR, IRS 3520, and IRS 8938 forms. He has defended law firms and other businesses accused of promoting abusive tax shelters, including those involving captive insurance, charitable LLCs, and syndicated conservation easements. He has also defended individuals and businesses accused of market manipulation, securities fraud, and criminal antitrust violations.

In his Business Litigation practice, Mr. Vollrath represents both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal court, particularly in cases involving unfair and deceptive trade practices and the suggestion of fraud. Representative matters include litigation on behalf of a consortium of childcare facilities that suffered enormous losses due to fraud by their accountant and alleged misconduct by their banks; actions brought by wrongfully dissociated business partners; and suits for civil fraud and breach of fiduciary obligations.

Outside of law practice, Mr. Vollrath serves on the board of the Broward County chapter of the Federal Bar Association, and on the sentencing subcommittee of the American Bar Association’s Civil and Criminal Tax Penalties Committee.
