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.

Joey T. Shabot, a shareholder in the Tel Aviv office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, was named one of Israel’s 40 most prominent professionals under 40. The list was published by The Marker, one of Israel’s leading business journals that annually selects executives, academics, public servants, technology entrepreneurs, and attorneys whom it expects will become key figures on the Israeli scene in the near future.

Shabot, 37, was selected, according to the publication, based on his outstanding achievements in the legal field. “He stands at one of the most important crossroads in the business world, representing Israeli and international companies alike in major corporate transactions,” noted the publication. Shabot regularly collaborates with his colleagues in Greenberg Traurig’s offices around the globe to serve clients who are active in Israel. In the last year alone, Shabot, together with Gary M. Epstein, Lorne S. Cantor, and other Greenberg Traurig attorneys in the Gaming Practice, represented the Canadian gaming giant Amaya in various transactions it conducted inside and outside Israel, including the acquisition of the Rational Group for more than $5 billion.  He also, together with Emilio J. Alvarez-Farré and other attorneys from the Miami office, represented Amadeus IT Group, a publically traded Spanish company, in various transactions in Israel, Europe, and the United States. In collaboration with David I. Schulman, Theodore I. Blum, and other attorneys in the Atlanta office, he advised InterContinentalExchange Group, owner of the New York Stock Exchange, on its acquisition of Super Derivatives for $350 million. He has also counseled the Delek Group of Yitzhak Tshuva on the sale of its U.S. insurance business, Republic Group, to AmTrust Insurance for approximately $220 million. Additionally, working closely with the Shanghai office, Shabot has represented Chinese investors in Israeli companies, including China’s Sichuan Hebang Biotechnology Co., a key client that purchased the majority interest in Israel’s Stockton Group at a value of $180 million. Shabot also represents several of Israel’s largest insurance companies and pension funds, in connection with real estate transactions in the United States.
