Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani will join the Miami-based international law firm Greenberg Traurig as Global Chair of the firm’s Cybersecurity and Crisis Management Practice and Senior Advisor to firm Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum.
Giuliani became the U.S. Associate Attorney General in 1981. He was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 1983. He served two consecutive terms as the 107th Mayor of the City of New York from 1994-2001, and then returned to the private sector as Chairman and CEO of Giuliani Partners. In 2005, he joined Bracewell & Giuliani, a Texas firm whose New York City office was established by the mayor in 2005. “This comes at a time when my practice and Greenberg Traurig’s particular focus on cybersecurity and related counseling, investigations and litigation is an absolute match,” said Giuliani, in a statement. “Data privacy and security risks are on the top of the mind of every CEO, General Counsel and corporate board I speak with.”
Former supervisory federal prosecutor Marc L. Mukasey will also join Greenberg Traurig; he will serve as Global Co-Chair of the firm’s White Collar Defense Practice. Mukasey previously was Unit Chief and Deputy Chief Appellate Attorney for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York and has been a staff attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission. With Bracewell & Giuliani, Mukasey lead trial counsel for executives in the Countrywide mortgage fraud trial and a municipal bond criminal antitrust trial, among other cases. In December, The National Law Journal named him a White Collar Trailblazer.
Greenberg Traurig, with about 1,900 attorneys in 38 offices, is among the 20 largest law firms in the world by revenue, the firm said. In the past year it added new offices in Berlin and Tokyo.
