Brown Rudnick Grows Litigation Practice in NYC

NYC comprises 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. At its core is Manhattan, a densely populated borough that’s among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centres. Its iconic sites include skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and sprawling Central Park. Broadway theatre is staged in neon-lit Times Square. 

Brown Rudnick added Michael Winograd as a partner in the firm’s New York City 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.

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.

Winograd is an adjunct professor at the Fordham University School of Law and co-founder of the Harlem Education Advancement Fund 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 United States Soccer.

Winograd earned his J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School, cum laude, Order of the Coif, and his B.A. from Lafayette College.
