Birnbaum Named Master of Ground Zero Fund

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom partner Sheila L. Birnbaum has been tapped by the U.S. Justice Department to run the fund that will be used to compensate ground zero workers who claim they are suffering illnesses as a result of their work in the wreckage of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. “Sheila Birnbaum brings extensive experience, credibility and unique insight to this important role,” Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday in making the announcement. “She has worked closely with, and won the trust of, the families of 9/11 victims with whom she worked. I know that under her direction, the fund will be administered in a manner that is sensitive and fair to those who have suffered so much” from the attacks.
