Who's Who Legal Business Crime Defence: Individuals

A partner in the litigation department, Michele Hirshman focuses her practice on white-collar defence and regulatory enforcement matters and internal investigations.

Since joining Paul, Weiss in 2007, Michele has represented public and privately held companies and individuals before the Department of Justice, United States Attorneys’ offices, the Securities & Exchange Commission, the New York and Massachusetts Attorneys General, the New York State Department of Financial Services and other federal, state and local law enforcement and regulatory authorities. Among her significant individual clients is former New York Attorney General and Governor Eliot Spitzer. She regularly advises pharmaceutical manufacturers, financial institutions, marketing companies, political organisations and public and private company executives in high-profile, high-stakes federal and state criminal and civil regulatory investigations.

Prior to joining Paul, Weiss, she served for eight years as first deputy attorney general for the State of New York and for 11 years as a federal prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where she was the deputy chief appellate attorney and chief of the General Crimes and Public Corruption Units. She has significant jury trial and appellate court experience, and received the John Marshall Award for Outstanding Legal Achievement from the US Department of Justice. For the past several years, The Best Lawyers in America has recognised Michele for white-collar criminal defence and she regularly speaks at conferences and on panels advising other practitioners in the field.

Michele also works on a broad range of criminal and civil pro bono cases with young lawyers at the firm and is a member of the boards of directors of The Legal Aid Society and the City Bar Justice Center. Ms Hirshman is recognised as a leading lawyer in Chambers USA for Litigation: white-collar crime and government investigations.

She was articles editor of the Yale Law Journal.
