Vikas S. Dhar is a defense attorney who protects professionals and companies facing white-collar criminal investigations, business disputes, professional crises and other matters presenting licensing and public relations risks. He is widely recognized as a leader in the New England legal community. As an accomplished "Top 40 Under 40" criminal defense attorney, he has been selected by his peers as a New England Super Lawyer/Rising Star in the area of White-Collar Criminal Defense for each of the past 10 years by Boston Magazine. His firm's philosophy on socially conscious business practices and community contributions have been profiled by Forbes, the American Bar Association Journal, the Boston Globe and the Boston Business Journal.
Regarded as powerful in the courtroom and unflappable at the negotiating table, Vikas talks fast because he thinks fast, and clients rave about his simultaneously calming demeanor, friendliness and never-ending energy reserves. Vikas was recently tapped by the U.S. District Court to sit on a Merit Selection Panel to recommend a new Federal Magistrate Judge and to advise on the reappointment of a sitting Federal Magistrate Judge. Vikas has been recognized by the National Trial Lawyers Organization as a Top 100 Massachusetts Defense Attorney, and alongside a U.S. Congressman and other honorees, he was presented with an “Excellence in the Law: Up & Coming Attorney” award by the Massachusetts Bar Association and Lawyers Weekly.
In addition to protecting his clients’ interests in criminal investigations, Vikas has earned a reputation for swiftly resolving personal crisis situations, enabling him and his defense team to successfully represent a host of prominent professionals, corporations, closely-held businesses, as well as university students facing first-time investigations or indictments. While his intense, full-field approach has led to trial victories, his primary strategic goal is always to persuade the government to decline to prosecute during the initial phase of any investigation and to secure pre-trial dismissals when possible.
Vikas is committed to making a positive impact on the community and participates in a variety of legal and business initiatives in greater Boston. He frequently contributes to training seminars, continuing education workshops and currently serves as a pro bono panel member for Senior Partners for Justice, a non-profit that promotes access to justice by assisting pro se family law litigants.
