Director's Bio

Maraya Best, Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto, LLP Associate Attorney

Maraya Best specializes in representing whistleblowers under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Commodity Exchange Act, the Dodd-Frank Act, the IRS whistleblower law, and the False Claims Act. She has a special expertise in representing international whistleblowers. She has worked closely with whistleblowers and the investigating federal agencies in disclosing illegal activities that have occurred in numerous foreign countries. Although almost all of her clients are anonymous and confidential, she assisted in the successful representation of Alex Chepurko, who obtained a judgment on behalf of the United States for $69.6 million in a False Claims Act qui tam lawsuit. Maraya has also provided highly effective assistance in the representation of Howard Wilkinson in his historic money laundering case.

Ms. Best was the 2018 recipient of the highly prestigious and competitive Estelle S. Kohn Memorial Fellowship awarded by Northeastern University School of Law. She graduated from Northeastern University School of Law in May 2018 and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Affairs and Hispanic Studies from Lewis & Clark College. Her background is in international human rights law, which she brings — along with advanced Spanish language fluency — to Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto’s international anti-corruption practice.
