NEW YORK (January 19, 2016) — Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has announced he will join global law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, as Global Chair of the firm’s Cybersecurity and Crisis Management Practice and Senior Advisor to firm Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum.
Also joining Greenberg Traurig will be former supervisory federal prosecutor Marc L. Mukasey who will serve as Global Co-Chair of the firm’s White Collar Defense Practice. Mukasey previously served as Unit Chief and Deputy Chief Appellate Attorney for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and was a former staff attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission. Giuliani and Mukasey will both be joining from Bracewell & Giuliani, a Texas firm whose New York City office was established by the Mayor in 2005, and where they practiced together for more than a decade. Mukasey led the White Collar Criminal Defense and Special Investigations Practice at that firm.
“I am proud to welcome Rudy Giuliani to Greenberg Traurig. While many other firms hold on to old business models or follow strategies premised on global growth for growth’s sake, for years we have focused on maintaining our uniquely empowering and collaborative, one-firm culture while delivering elite quality in our core practices along with extraordinary value not possible in traditional elite firms. This independent approach has naturally led to our practice and geographic expansion. Our strategic focus on crisis management, white collar criminal defense, cybersecurity and governmental investigations will be enhanced in a major way by bringing the Mayor to the Greenberg Traurig family. He has long been one of the most important and influential lawyers and leaders in this country, and will now be bringing to our clients his unparalleled experience in all areas of legal problem-solving and crisis management, as well as his unique geopolitical insights,” Rosenbaum said.
