NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Guidepost Solutions, a global leader in compliance, investigations,
monitoring, and security consulting, is proud to announce that Bart M.
Schwartz, Chairman, has been named to City & State’s
inaugural Law Power 50 list. City & State’s lists of the most
powerful people in New York have previously featured recognized leaders
from the real estate, higher education, and technology sectors and takes
into account the opinion of insiders and experts in each respective
field, ranking those on the list based on their achievements, track
record, and sway with powerful politicians. Mr. Schwartz is recognized
as the eleventh most powerful person in New York politics working in law.

“I’m grateful to City & State for this great honor, and for
being included alongside some of the most accomplished people in the
legal profession,” said Mr. Schwartz. “Throughout my career, I have
served as a trial lawyer, corporate advisor, and the CEO of both a
private company and a unit of a public company. In every role I’ve held,
it is my legal training that prepared me to manage complex situations. I
am proud to be part of the New York legal community.”

Described by The New York Times as the person “often sought
out in…thorny situations” by corporations, Mr. Schwartz has wide
experience providing advice and support to companies, governments, and
individuals. He served under U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani as the Chief
of the Criminal Division in the Southern District of New York. In that
post, Mr. Schwartz had oversight for prosecutions related to financial
and business fraud, organized crime, narcotics, and other types of
criminal activity.

of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Geoffrey
Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, as the
federal Monitor overseeing the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA),
ensuring that it corrects the chronically poor housing conditions
endured by residents.

For more than 30 years, Mr. Schwartz has managed complex investigations,
prosecutions, and security assessments, and provided sophisticated
investigative services to a wide array of entities. In addition to the
NYCHA federal monitorship, he has had numerous appointments from the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice,
and other local and federal entities to monitor the conduct of
organizations ranging from General Motors to an international Norwegian
