NEW YORK – January 11, 2021 – Brown Rudnick LLP announced the addition of David A. Moreno, Jr. as a partner in the Litigation & Arbitration Practice Group. He is based in the firm’s New York office. Moreno’s arrival adds even more depth to Brown Rudnick’s team of top trial lawyers, which includes market-leading litigators advising on white collar defense, commercial litigation, restructuring, intellectual property and litigation funding, among other matters.

Moreno joins from Spar & Bernstein PC, where he was a partner and established the Corporate Business, Sports & Entertainment Department. Furthermore, Moreno managed Spar & Bernstein’s Criminal Defense Department and served as the firm’s lead trial lawyer, handling trial-ready cases in criminal and civil courts. Moreno regularly managed a caseload of more than 100 active matters in state and federal courts.

Moreno’s practice covers a wide range of areas, including commercial litigation, white-collar defense, intellectual property protection, tax, investment disputes, and sports and entertainment, winning settlement amounts and jury awards among the top in the field. Moreno has extensive experience advising on an array of domestic and international white-collar matters, including healthcare fraud, securities fraud, and other financial crimes. Moreno previously served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, where he prosecuted more than 1200 criminal cases and tried 13 cases to verdict, reporting a perfect trial record.

“David is a highly-skilled and tenacious litigator with a strong track record of success. He is a great addition to the firm as we grow our litigation presence in New York and worldwide,” commented Sunni Beville, Managing Director of Brown Rudnick’s Dispute Resolution & Restructuring Department.

With more than 100 litigators in the United States and Europe, Brown Rudnick routinely and successfully counsels clients on high-stakes domestic and international litigations. Moreno’s addition speaks to Brown Rudnick’s growing litigation practice. In the past year, the group also added Michael J. Bowe and Lauren Tabaksblat, formerly with Kasowitz Benson Torres, and Jason Wareham, formerly a U.S. Marine Corp Judge Advocate and one of the longest-serving litigators in the Marine Corps.

“Brown Rudnick is an industry standout highly regarded for its premier litigation practice. I’m very excited to be part of a firm rooted in entrepreneurship and committed to expanding its position worldwide,” said Moreno who has been the recipient of numerous awards. He was named among the Expert Network’s Distinguished Lawyers, National Trial Lawyers’ Top 100 Trial Lawyers - Criminal Defense, National Black Lawyers’ Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 and the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys’ Top 10 Lawyers Under 40.
