Christopher J. Keller discusses the Firm’s strategy behind strengthening our practice and expanding our presence

Labaton Sucharow has hired four new lawyers in its Securities Litigation Practice, adding one in its New York office, and three others who will reside in the Firm's recently launched Washington, D.C. office. In a recent statement, the Firm announced that Mark S. Willis is joining as partner in D.C., while the three other new hires are taking of counsel roles. Willis joins the Firm from Spector Roseman Kodroff & Willis, P.C., as do two of the new of counsels—Mark Bogen and James McGovern. Another new of counsel, David Schwartz, joins the Firm from a rival securities class action firm. 

The Firm also reinforced its Whistleblower Practice by adding three partners who have past experience in federal government roles. Those hires include former federal prosecutor Steven J. Durham and a pair of former SEC enforcement officials—Timothy L. Warren and Robert G. Wilson. 

Partner Christopher J. Keller explained the Firm’s approach with The American Lawyer. "The Firm continually looks for opportunities to move strategically and respond to current and, what we believe to be, long-term industry trends. The addition of these experienced lawyers well positions us to accomplish these goals."
