Recently retired New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Barry Albin joined Lowenstein Sandler as partner in the litigation department and chair of the appellate practice group.

He will also serve as a neutral arbitrator, special master and mediator in complicated, high-stakes disputes, the firm announced July 14.

Albin retired in July after 20 years on the state’s highest court.

After his appointment by Gov. Jim McGreevey in 2002, he authored more than 400 opinions during his time on the bench, including over 230 majority opinions, more than 130 dissents and dozens of concurrences.

Albin has written opinions in the fields of criminal law and the rights of the accused; constitutional law and the rights of same-sex couples; civil rights; contract, family, insurance, employment discrimination, municipal government, tax, and election law; products liability, mass toxic torts as well as medical and legal malpractice; among others.

Prior to joining the New Jersey Supreme Court, he served as a deputy attorney general and assistant prosecutor. Albin also practiced law in the private sector for two decades, handling criminal defense and civil rights cases along with tort and employment law cases. He tried approximately 60 jury trials, many non-jury cases, and argued numerous appeals.

“Justice Albin is a brilliant trial and appellate lawyer, and jurist. It is a personal and professional honor that my dear friend of more than two decades has chosen Lowenstein Sandler for the next chapter of his storied career,” said Christopher Porrino, a former state attorney general who now chairs Lowenstein’s litigation department. “He is a skilled litigator and formidable advocate in the courtroom and will be a tireless arbitrator and mediator for those seeking to resolve their most complicated and difficult disputes.”

“My long career has intersected with many outstanding Lowenstein lawyers, some of whom have served as my clerks. I look forward to joining a firm that pursues the highest standards of professional excellence and that is committed to doing justice and serving the community,” Albin said.
