On Monday, Roseland-based Lowenstein Sandler LLP announced Rachel Maimin and H. Gregory Baker have joined the firm as partners in its New York office.
Maimin is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, where she spent nearly ten years, and Baker is a former senior counsel in the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement Asset Management Unit.
Baker will be a part of the Capital Markets Litigation and White Collar Criminal Defense practice groups. He will also advise investment fund clients in the firm’s Investment Management practice. According to Lowenstein, he has worked extensively with the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies in the course of his investigations, having received four Directors Awards from the Division of Enforcement.
Maimin also joins Lowenstein’s White Collar Criminal Defense practice. She was most recently part of the SDNY team that investigated and prosecuted President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen.
“Our White Collar and Capital Markets Litigation groups were already in elite company as far as numbers and experience, but we are doubling down by adding Rachel and Greg,” said Christopher Porrino, chair of Lowenstein Sandler’s Litigation department, in a prepared statement. “Rachel’s background includes some of the most noteworthy cases in New York and around the globe, and Greg’s work with the SEC has involved some of the most cutting-edge subjects that our fintech and investment fund clients currently face.”
In the past 18 months, the White Collar group at Lowenstein – chaired by former Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Himmel – and the Capital Markets practice have added a number of high-profile members to its team including Porrino, partner and the former Attorney General of New Jersey under Gov. Chris Christie; Ryan Wilson, partner and former Assistant U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of New York; Elie Honig, special counsel and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Southern District of New York and former Director of Department of Law and Public Safety, New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice; Ann Milgram, special counsel and former Attorney General of New Jersey; Kathleen McGee, counsel and former bureau chief of the New York State Attorney General’s Office Bureau of Internet and Technology; and Shontae Gray, associate and former Deputy Attorney General of New Jersey.i
