Murphy & King Launches New White Collar Defense Practice

December 11, 2017

Murphy & King, Professional Corporation announced today that it has launched a White Collar Defense and Internal Investigation practice and hired veteran attorney Daniel Rabinovitz to lead the new practice group. Rabinovitz has joined Murphy & King as a shareholder of the firm and is an experienced business, securities, and white collar litigation attorney. In this new role, he will work with other Murphy & King attorneys to represent individual and corporate clients by helping them navigate the complex landscape arising out of regulatory and governmental investigations as well as criminal prosecutions.

“It has been important to us over the past several years to develop a White Collar practice, but we knew we needed the right attorney to lead it,” said Harry Murphy, a shareholder and founder of Murphy & King. “Dan is that person. He has decades of experience in this area of the law, as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Above all, he’s a consummate trial lawyer, which allows him to achieve the best results possible for our clients.  The fact that he is not just willing but excited to bring a case to trial means that his adversaries are more likely to capitulate. If the government will not capitulate, our White Collar group is ready to attack the government’s case and provide a top notch courtroom defense for our clients. “

Prior to Joining Murphy & King, Mr. Rabinovitz specialized in white collar defense at several law firms including the Boston firms of Michaels Ward & Rabinovitz, and Dwyer & Collora, as well as most recently at Greenberg Traurig. Early in his career, Mr. Rabinovitz spent seven years as a criminal prosecutor in the Cook County Attorney’s office in Illinois.

Trying cases has been a passion of Mr. Rabinovitz for many years. He is a Program Director for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy’s Boston Trial program, where he leads a week long program assisting less experienced trial attorneys developing their skills—a program that culminates in a mock jury trial.

“I am thrilled that Murphy & King has given me the opportunity to lead this new practice area of the firm,” said Mr. Rabinovitz. “Murphy & King has always been passionate about providing their litigation clients with the best defense possible, including taking cases to trial.  While I always attempt to resolve a case short of trial, if my adversary is unreasonable, I revel at the chance to convince a judge or jury to find in favor of my client. That shared philosophy is the cornerstone of why Murphy & King is such a great fit for me and for the firm.”

Murphy & King’s White Collar Defense and Internal Investigation practice group offers clients representation by attorneys with substantial law enforcement and prosecutorial experience, including Rabinovitz and Daniel J. Dwyer.

Mr. Rabinovitz will also continue to handle complex business litigation and securities related litigation.
