Victoria (Tori) Roeck maintains a diverse commercial litigation practice, to which she brings substantial federal court experience.
At Holwell Shuster & Goldberg, Tori has represented media analytics startup Entertainment Data Oracle, Inc., both in a California lawsuit against the company alleging misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright violation, and breach of contract and in a Delaware lawsuit brought by the company alleging tortious interference against a competitor. She also has represented a supplier in a breach-of-contract dispute against Walmart Inc. over a $500 million nitrile glove deal during the COVID-19 pandemic and HSBC Bank USA as trustee for multiple RMBS trusts in putback cases against DB Structured Products, Inc., with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. Tori also maintains a robust pro bono docket of immigration matters, both in federal appellate courts and immigration courts.
From 2018-2020, Tori served as a Gruber Fellow in Global Justice and as a staff attorney at the New York Civil Liberties Union, where she focused on combatting unlawful immigration detention at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility. Her work included class actions, habeas corpus petitions, and amicus briefs at the trial and appellate levels. That experience built on her time in the Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic at Yale Law School, through which she helped secure nationwide injunctions against the first Muslim Ban and the DACA termination, earning the Charles G. Albom Prize for excellence in appellate advocacy.
Tori joined HSG from a clerkship with the Hon. Allyne R. Ross in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
