Zuckerman Spaeder LLP Continues Expansion of New York Office

Handshake

The law firm of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP announced in recent days that Andrew E. Tomback joined the firm as a partner in its New York office.

Mr. Tomback has over twenty-five years of experience in business, private practice and government service, and handles a full range of civil and criminal litigation before the ‎courts, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and various ‎other regulators. He focuses his practice on litigations and investigations regarding federal securities ‎laws, complex litigation, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and international arbitrations.

Tomback’s addition follows the firm’s addition last month of Steven M. Cohen to lead the expansion and development of its New York office. Cohen was most recently Secretary to New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. Earlier this week, established litigator and appellate lawyer Paul Shechtman also joined the firm.

Tomback, Cohen, and Shechtman all served together as assistant U.S. attorneys in the Southern District of New York. In addition, Tomback and Cohen both clerked for the Honorable Stanley Sporkin of the U.S. District Court for the District of ‎Columbia.

Cohen was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Andy is an outstanding lawyer who comes to us with a history of success both in private practice and in government. Andy is not just a top-notch litigator, but he also gives us real depth in our New York office. This addition again demonstrates what we are building here in New York—a top flight team of lawyers that mirrors what Zuckerman Spaeder offers in Washington, DC and all its offices.”

Zuckerman Spaeder chairman Graeme W. Bush was quoted as saying: “Andy brings another dimension to our complex commercial litigation experience. His experience complements and enhances the full range of sophisticated criminal and commercial litigation capabilities for which our firm is known.”

Prior to entering private practice, Tomback served as deputy general counsel of the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC). Mr. Tomback also ‎held various positions in government agencies, where he was involved in many high-profile and complex cases. As a senior advisor to the undersecretary for enforcement at the Department of the Treasury, he played an integral role in the passage of the Brady Bill, the Assault Weapons Bill, and the 100,000 Cops provision of the 1994 Crime Bill. He also investigated the Waco tragedy and was a principal drafter of Treasury’s incisive report. As an assistant U.S. attorney in the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, Tomback tried 12 cases, all to conviction, and prevailed in over 20 appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Tomback was quoted as saying: “I’m thrilled to be joining Zuckerman Spaeder’s expanding New York team. The firm has a well-deserved reputation for excellence in complex litigation, and this move gives me an ideal platform to grow my practice in New York and beyond.”

Zuckerman Spaeder is a national litigation boutique representing individual and institutional clients in high-stakes civil and commercial cases. Founded in 1975, the firm employs many of the nation’s leading lawyers. Among them are former federal prosecutors and public defenders, and attorneys who have served in congressional offices and federal agencies.
