Gabriel Markoff specializes in white collar defense work, corporate investigations, and appellate litigation. In addition, he maintains an active pro bono practice working with a national non-profit civil rights group on impact litigation designed to defend minority voting rights and advance immigrants’ rights nationwide.

In his work at O’Melveny, Gabriel has taken on leadership roles in both litigation representations and investigatory matters. He has co-authored numerous briefs and prepared advocates for oral argument in the U.S. Supreme Court and federal courts of appeals, presented oral argument in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (winning reversal of a grant of summary judgment against O’Melveny’s client), and first-chaired dozens of witness interviews in high-profile investigations.

Prior to joining O’Melveny, Gabriel served as one of the first law clerks to the Honorable Gregg J. Costa (since elevated to the Fifth Circuit) of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. While clerking for Judge Costa, Gabriel published the first empirical survey of the effects of federal corporate prosecutions, an article that has been cited in publications including The Guardian, Financial Times, CBS MoneyWatch, and the Michigan Law Review, California Law Review, and Virginia Law Review.
