Before that, he was chief of the Southern District of New York’s organized crime and terrorism unit in the aftermath of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Park has handled a range of securities and other white-collar litigation, including matters brought by the DOJ and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Collier Halpern & Newberg name attorney Philip Halpern was renominated as a district judge for the Southern District of New York and Cohoes City Court Judge Thomas Marcelle for the Northern District of New York.
Halpern has been a civil litigator in White Plains for 30 years. Marcelle was a trial attorney for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division before serving as counsel to the GOP minority in the Albany County legislature and as county attorney for Albany.
The slate also includes picks for district courts in Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Pennsylvania. It also includes nominees for the Ninth, Third and D.C. circuits.
