Dwight A. Healy Joins the Firm as a Partner
New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP announced today that Dwight A. Healy has joined the firm as a partner in New York. Dwight comes to the firm from White & Case LLP, where he practiced for over 35 years. He is the second lateral partner to join HSG from an AmLaw 100 firm this year.
“Dwight is an outstanding litigator, and his presence will significantly increase our capacity to provide the highest level of service to our growing client base,” said Judge Richard Holwell, co-founder of the firm and a former federal judge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. “We’re very happy to be making such a strong addition to our bench of talent.”
“This is the ideal way to bring my practice full circle,” said Dwight, who previously worked with name partners Judge Holwell, Mike Shuster, and Dan Goldberg at White & Case. Judge Holwell and Shuster led the global litigation practice at that firm before Judge Holwell’s confirmation to the federal judiciary in 2003. “I have tremendous respect for what Holwell Shuster & Goldberg has already accomplished, and I’m eager to play a role in establishing it as one of the nation’s leading litigation boutiques.”
Over three decades of practice, Dwight has frequently represented financial services industry clients in litigation and arbitrations touching on federal securities laws, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), as well as a wide range of corporate and commercial law issues. He also has significant experience in antitrust and bankruptcy proceedings, as well as disputes involving Native American land claim law and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.
With his arrival at the firm, Dwight becomes the seventh partner at HSG and the third added to the firm in 2014. Previously this year, John DiMatteo, the head of the firm’s intellectual property litigation practice, joined from the Am Law 100 firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. In early 2014, former associate Avi Israeli was elevated to partner.
