Mr. McGuire has successfully tried over 30 appellate matters before federal and state courts and administrative tribunals. Prior to joining the firm, Jim served, among other positions, as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in its Criminal Division, a Partner of White & Case, and the Founding Partner and Partner-In-Charge of the New York Office of the Sheppard Mullin firm, based in Los Angeles.
Mr. Berube practices in the area of complex commercial litigation, and has served as legal advisor to Fortune 500 and international business entities in antitrust, bankruptcy, copyright, employment litigation, RICO, insurance and securities regulation. He has extensive experience representing both defendants and plaintiffs in a wide array of business disputes involving breach of contract, claims of fraud, defamation, interference with contract and unfair practices.

Mr. Patrick has advised and represented some of the most recognized and well-known businesses and individuals in the world, often when the stakes are high and the outcomes are critical.

Mr. Simonson provides advice and counsel to companies, both privately held and publicaly traded, in a range of matters – mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate finance, technology transactions, corporate governance, securities, capital raises (including venture capital), internal investigations, and day-to-day business operations, among them. A seasoned pro both in and out of the boardroom, Mr. Simonson is particularly adept at handling leveraged buyouts, the acquisition of distressed assets, corporate restructurings and partnership transactions. Likewise, he is often called upon to represent his clients’ interests in friendly and hostile takeovers, proxy contests, tender offers, mixed consideration mergers and the acquisition of closely held companies.
