McKool Smith, P.C.

United States Attorney’s Office — Southern District of New York

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP

“My practice over the years has been a very lucky thing. I’ve had a great mix of international cases—from virtually every major country in Europe and many in Latin America and Asia—to matters homegrown in my native New York City. These cases have many times been white collar criminal matters, on both the federal and state sides, but also a wide and varied diet of fascinating civil matters in commercial, securities, estate and real estate, banking—you name it.

“I think the reason I’ve had so many different, and so many interesting, cases is that the clients have been so different and interesting, and their problems so challenging. From getting an injunction against the federal government—twice—in a white collar grand jury matter in federal court in the District of Columbia on behalf of Mexican clients to trying an estate matter off a red dirt road in Louisiana for a Venezuelan client—the experiences sometimes defy the imagination.

“I’ve represented clients in insider trading cases around the world and whistleblowers, from both here and abroad, in huge cases where my experience as a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York made all the difference to those I had the privilege to represent.

“In sum, the rich work of my practice is its own satisfaction and reward. It’s what I became a lawyer for more decades ago than I care to count.”

“Tom Engel and I practiced together for nearly a quarter of a century before 2007, and it is great professional fun to be back in harness with him, who brings an added dimension of zest and depth to our work.

“The mix of white collar criminal cases and the civil cases from all over covers a lot of ground, but it is precisely that broad-gauge expertise our clients are looking for, especially in the international arena where so many of the most interesting cases originate. From an Amsterdam arbitration of a royalty dispute to getting a criminal forfeiture order against our Brazilian clients lifted in New York, we achieve results in forums far and near that are signposts of the international litigation that has engaged us for decades.

“Our new headquarters right next to Carnegie Hall will be a destination for sophisticated New Yorkers from all over the world looking for the best in counseling, championing and prevailing in the often complex andhighly charged litigation ETM finds daily on its docket."

“Joining Engel Thornburgh & McCarney was a natural for me. It gives me a great chance to work both hard and hand in glove with very sharp, very experienced lawyers who cover the waterfront of litigation, arbitration, dispute resolution—exactly the kind of work I’ve been training to do over the last several years.

“My broad background working on a wide-range of civil and criminal matters—at both a major global law firm and on the front lines at a smaller litigation shop—is a perfect match for the diverse swath of work that is ETM’s stock-in-trade. Working in such a top-notch environment with such first-class people was too good an opportunity to look at twice. I leapt at it."

“I feel very fortunate to have had a lot of experience over the last decade with a great variety of cases and clients in my legal practice, first in a unique high-profile boutique setting at the original Engel & McCarney firm and later in two large national and international firms. Whether an intellectual property jury trial, a government securities investigation, an international tax matter, or a regulatory arbitration, the prestige and pace of the large firms, while sometimes exciting, left me feeling that I was capable of more—more creativity, more leadership, and a more down-to-earth professional connection and bond with clients, large and small

“Returning to work with Tom Engel and Jim McCarney is not just the completion of a circle that began 10 years ago, but a new leaf in my legal practice where I can employ a decade of experience again in a more personal manner. The opportunity to offer that large firm sophistication, but also small firm attention, to global clients of all types and sizes can only exist among high caliber lawyers with the unique depth and diversity the combined experience our firm brings to each and every engagement."

“With my onetime teachers now as colleagues, I could not be more excited about the work we are doing together and the results we are achieving for the clients of Engel Thornburgh & McCarney."
