Rudolph Giuliani, senior partner at Bracewell & Giuliani, said: “Our growth in New York stems from client demand for M&A, capital markets, corporate restructuring and regulatory advice, especially in the energy and financial service sectors. I'm pleased that we've been able to build such a high-calibre team in little more than a year.”
Also joining Bracewell & Giuliani is former special assistant US attorney Craig Warkol, who will serve the firm as counsel in the white collar crime and regulatory defence practice.
Bracewell & Giuliani launched in the Big Apple last May when former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani started the office of what was then known as Bracewell & Patterson. In that time the New York office has grown to 27 lawyers including winning a group of three lawyers from Linklaters led by US head of corporate Mark Palmer.
