Zuckerman Spaeder LLP has expanded its Baltimore office with the addition of all five lawyers from Murphy & Shaffer LLC.
The move will increase the firm’s business litigation and white-collar criminal defence practices.
“Baltimore has always been a vital part of Zuckerman Spaeder’s national litigation presence,” said Graeme Bush, chairman of the firm. “The five lawyers joining us from another of Baltimore’s most respected litigation firms will give Zuckerman Spaeder an even more formidable local presence and even greater depth nationally.”
Leading business crime litigator and founding partner of Murphy & Shaffer, William Murphy, has joined the firm as a partner. Murphy’s widely recognised practice involves civil litigation, white-collar criminal matters, congressional investigations, US Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement proceedings and appellate matters.
“I have known and worked with many of the attorneys at Zuckerman Spaeder for as long as 25 years, and we are all excited to join this firm of experienced litigators,” said Murphy. “Our combined strengths will add to Zuckerman Spaeder’s legal talent for businesses and individuals facing complex civil, criminal, and regulatory litigation.”
Murphy is listed in The International Who’s Who of Business Crime Defence Lawyers.
