Neil M. Barofsky is an accomplished trial lawyer and well-known authority on a variety of issues at the intersection of economics, law, business and politics. Drawing upon his experience as the first special inspector general of the historic federal $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and a former federal prosecutor, Mr. Barofsky focuses his practice on white collar investigations, complex commercial litigation, monitorships and examinerships. In his role as chief watchdog for TARP, he created and oversaw a law enforcement division that conducted criminal and civil investigations of fraud and abuse linked to the bailout program, resulting in recoveries or avoided losses of more than $700 million in taxpayer money and which has led to more than 100 fraud convictions to date. He also established and oversaw an audit division that created reports that brought greater transparency and accountability to TARP, recommended ways to improve the program, and which protected taxpayers from fraud-related losses.
For his work in the Refco matter, Mr. Barofsky received the Attorney General’s John Marshall Award, the Department of Justice’s highest award for excellence in legal performance, and the Executive Office of the United States Attorneys’ Director’s Award for Superior Performance.
Immediately before joining Jenner & Block, Mr. Barofsky was Senior Fellow at New York University School of Law’s Center on the Administration of Criminal Law, an adjunct professor at the law school and affiliated with the Mitchell Jacobson Leadership Program on Law and Business. He is a frequent speaker and commentator on issues related to financial regulation, was a senior contributing editor for Bloomberg TV, and has written opinion columns for publications such as The New York Times, the Financial Times, The New Republic, Bloomberg, Reuters and others. He is also the author of Bailout, his bestselling book about his experiences as SIGTARP.

I have read Robert Grundstein's book, VENDETTA. Every "lawyer" in America needs to read this book, right now Mr. Barofsky, Et Al. PROSECUTORS' RUN THE STATES, NOT THE GOVERNORS'. So, Mr. Barofsky, Et Al, what happened to the BOOK about MONEY SOVEREIGNTY? Not even the great writer Robert Grundstein has dialed in the reality of NO MONEY SOVEREIGNTY is a NAZI IDEOLOGY and IT worked, then and now.
