New York, NY – Wiggin and Dana Litigation Partner, David Hall, is releasing a new book entitled, CRACK99: The Takedown of a $100 Million Chinese Software Pirate, published by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. The book is a gripping narrative of David's experience as a member of the elite undercover team that captured Xiang Li, creator of Crack99, an online retail site selling high-tech software products used largely by the military. It presents an eye-opening look at cybercrime and its chilling consequences for national security.

In 2013, Mr. Hall retired from the United States Department of Justice after a distinguished 23-year career as an Assistant United States Attorney. While in federal service, Mr. Hall received the Director's Award for Superior Performance, numerous Special Act Awards, and other awards and commendations from government agencies, including the FBI, CIA, DEA, and ATF.

David will be discussing his personal experiences that inspired the book at a launch event hosted in the New York City office of Wiggin and Dana on October 19th. The release of David's book is timely in the face of recent news of increased Chinese sanctions.
