Jack Harrington, Esq. Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLPWhile technology makes it possible for lawyers and clients halfway around the world from one another to stay in touch, there’s still an undeniable sense of comfort and convenience when your attorney is in your own backyard.  Harrington brings this reassurance to clients on Long Island, who previously needed to look beyond Nassau and Suffolk Counties to receive counsel on the highly specialized areas of law pertaining to international business operations.

Harrington counsels clients from multinational public companies to individuals in a variety of white collar and enforcement matters and provides compliance and governance advice to corporations with a global footprint.  He has conducted internal investigations throughout the world and has represented clients in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, anti-money laundering, international trade sanctions, cross-border investment, and securities matters before the U.S. Congress, DOJ, SEC, and other federal agencies.

Harrington also represents clients in federal commercial litigation.  He represents corporations and senior executives in complex business disputes and arbitration, often with an international component.  An experienced appellate litigator, he has also represented clients before the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

A Suffolk County native, Harrington returned to Long Island after practicing in Washington D.C. and New York City.  His diverse legal career includes serving as a post-graduate legal intern in the White House Counsel’s Office, where he advised White House lawyers and policymakers on a range of international, criminal, and constitutional law matters.  Harrington was also a member of the Yale Supreme Court Advocacy Clinic—providing pro bono clients representation before the Supreme Court—and a legal fellow on the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

In addition to his legal practice, Harrington is a recognized national security expert with broad experience across the government, academic, and consulting sectors.  He is an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve and a Fellow at the Truman National Security Project.  He has advised various government agencies on intelligence, counter-terrorism, and homeland security matters.

A graduate of the University of St. Andrews (Scotland), Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, and Yale Law School, Harrington co-founded and serves on the board of the Linda Ross-Harrington Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting foreign language studies, multicultural education, and literacy among Long Island residents.

Harrington lives in Stony Brook where he serves as a Vice-Chair of the Brookhaven Town Democratic Committee and member of the vestry at St. James Episcopal Church.
