Maxine K. Streeter, a former senior litigator for the Office of the Florida Attorney General, has joined Genovese Joblove & Battista after 12 years as a partner at Conrad & Scherer.

Genovese Joblove & Battista has pulled in Streeter as of counsel as it prepares for three cases set for trial this year. Streeter said she is “hitting the ground running” and preparing for the cases. Two of the cases involve representing trustees in bankruptcies in Tampa, and a third case involves representing a fraud victim in Broward County.

Streeter’s practice focuses on complex commercial and class action litigation in a wide range of civil cases in the areas of fraud, civil theft, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, contracts and general business litigation.

At Conrad & Scherer, Streeter was part of the litigation team that represented more than 90 innocent investors in actions against the banks in the Scott W. Rothstein Ponzi scheme scandal. After months of litigation, the matter was resolved through settlement, resulting in a significant recovery for victims of the scheme.

Streeter resigned from Conrad & Scherer at the start of the year and began work at Genovese Joblove on Jan. 16.

Streeter’s work at the Florida Attorney General’s office included litigating class action cases related to child welfare, civil rights and the department of corrections, as well as defending the constitutionality of statutes passed after the death of stock car racer Dale Earnhardt regarding the privacy of autopsy records. Her prior experience involved securities litigation.

She ran for Broward judge last year but was eliminated in the primary. She said Conrad & Scherer was very supportive during her candidacy.
