Earlier this week, on Monday, the law firm Weil Gotshal & Manges announced that a law firm partner, Vernon Broderick has been nominated by the White House for federal bench in the Southern District of New York.

While announcing the nomination of Broderick, President Obama said, “I am proud to nominate this outstanding candidate to serve on the United States District Court bench. Vernon Broderick has a long and distinguished record of service, and I am confident he will serve on the federal bench with distinction.”

If the Senate confirms his nomination, Broderick would earn the distinction of being the first Dominican-American federal judge in the state of New York. Broderick was initially recommended by U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York.


In a statement, Barry Wolf, executive partner of Weil Gotshal said that the law firm was honoured to have one of its partners nominated for the federal bench. Wolf said, “We are incredibly proud of Vernon for this professional recognition, and are honoured to have a member of our firm nominated for the federal bench.”

Vernon Broderick has been practicing at Weil Gotshal from 1988, since he graduated from the Harvard Law School. In 1994, Broderick left the law firm to join the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York. He returned to Weil Gotshal as counsel in 2002 and became a partner in 2005.

For the law firm, Broderick focused on white-collar defense and legal compliance investigations, as also complex business litigation like representing the estate of Lehman Brothers in bankruptcy investigations.
