Hughes Hubbard and Foley & Lardner partners launch boutique firm in NY
Hughes Hubbard & Reed partner Kenneth Lee has joined forces with former Foley & Lardner partner Seth Levine and former federal prosecutor Scott Klugman to launch litigation boutique Levine Lee in New York.
The boutique firm will focus on complex civil litigation and white-collar and securities enforcement defense.
Levine believes that the combined experience of the founding group – including private practice work at large firms and prosecutorial experience - will give the fledgling firm the edge.
"There are many fine boutique firms that emphasize complex civil litigation or white-collar," he says. "But because of our experience--both in handling the most challenging complex civil litigation, but also equally in cutting-edge white-collar work--we believe we have sort of a unique perspective in managing important litigation that our civil experience greatly enhances our white-collar capacity and vice versa."
