Ira Sorkin, Lawyer for Bernie Madoff, Leaves Dickstein Shapiro

lowenstein sandlerThe New York Law Journal reports Ira “Ike” Sorkin, perhaps best known for his role representing Bernie Madoff, will leave Dickstein Shapiro for Lowenstein Sandler.

According to the report, Sorkin, who was co-head of Dickstein Shapiro’s securities litigation and white-collar practice, is defecting to Lowestein Sandler along with partner Donald A. Corbett and four associates.

Sorkin told the New York Law Journal Lowenstein Sandler “presents a unique opportunity for myself and my group that I could not pass up.”

The New York Law Journal notes firms are building interest in their white-collar practice, largely as a result of increased enforcement from the SEC and DOJ in light of the financial meltdown.  Lowenstein Managing Director Gary M. Wingens told the Web site the addition of Sorkin’s team is in line with that increased emphasis.
