Brown Rudnick added Michael Winograd as a partner in the firm’s New York office. He joins as a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group.
With over two decades of experience at leading international law firms, Winograd represents large corporations, private equity firms and financial institutions in high stakes litigation. His practice is focused on a broad range of commercial, securities, bankruptcy, and other complex civil litigation, as well as regulatory proceedings and internal investigations.
“Michael is a tremendous litigator bringing a breadth of knowledge in complex litigation and stretching across industries, including healthcare, financial services and sports,” said Neil Micklethwaite, Managing Director of Brown Rudnick’s Dispute Resolution Department. “In the current litigation landscape, our clients regularly inquire about a range of matters from the uptick in healthcare litigation and bankruptcy proceedings, to best practices to avoid litigation specific to their industry. Michael’s twenty years of experience make him a valuable asset to our growing litigation practice, and we are excited to welcome him to the team.”
Winograd has litigated in federal and state courts throughout the United States and before domestic and foreign arbitration panels and regulatory agencies. He has successfully litigated matters through judgment, negotiated settlements, and represented clients on both sides of expedited applications for emergency relief. He also routinely counsels entities and their boards on strategy and risks in connection with potential disputes and transactions.
“The quality and reputation of Brown Rudnick’s lawyers are second to none, and the firm’s collaborative global platform and specialised feel of a true law partnership focused on providing quality service make it a perfect fit for me and my practice,” said Winograd. “The firm’s strategic growth in key markets and industries matches up well with the needs of my client base and will broaden my practice’s capabilities in a range of complex litigation matters. I look forward being a part of this exceptional team.”
Winograd is an adjunct professor at the Fordham University School of Law and co-founder of the Harlem Education Advancement Fund (HEAF) Legal Mentoring Program, where he was a recipient of the HEAF Long-term Volunteer Service Award.
After playing professional soccer in Israel and coaching men’s soccer at the University of Richmond, Winograd co-started a second division professional A-League soccer franchise. In 2018, he was a second-ballot candidate for President of U.S. Soccer.
