SOMERSET, N.J., May 12, 2014 – PIB Law announced today that Scott S. Rose, formerly a partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, a top tier international law firm in New York City, has joined the firm as a partner and Chair of the firm's Complex Commercial and Securities Litigation practice group.
The addition of Mr. Rose continues the rapid expansion of the New Jersey-based firm that was founded three years ago. "While I will miss my longtime friends and colleagues at Willkie, I am excited to join a thriving firm with a solid infrastructure that continues to grow each day," said Mr. Rose. "The real key is that most of the lawyers at the firm are from national firms and have in-house counsel experience, which provides me with a deep and sophisticated bench to service our clients. I share the vision of my partners in growing a best in class, national complex commercial and securities litigation practice at PIB Law."
"Having Scott on board is a game changer for us," said Sanjay Ibrahim, the firm's managing partner. "His talent and experience further enhance our mission to deliver outstanding service in a broad array of sophisticated litigation. We targeted Scott not just for his leadership qualities, but also because Scott's personality is a great fit with our firm's culture. We are well aware of Willkie's collegial atmosphere and the type of attorney they look for, which mirrors what we look for in a top-notch attorney. Scott is a natural fit for us, and we are all thrilled to call him our colleague and partner."
Mr. Rose specializes in complex commercial litigation, securities litigation, SEC and other governmental and regulatory investigations, accounting irregularities, internal investigations, and employment litigation and counseling. He has extensive experience representing public and private companies, officers and directors, hedge funds, and accounting firms in federal, state, and bankruptcy courts throughout the United States. Mr. Rose has represented clients in various industries, including financial services, health care, insurance and reinsurance, media and entertainment, manufacturing, and real estate. He has earned the honor and distinction of being listed as a "Rising Star in Business Litigation" in New York Super Lawyers—Metro Edition on multiple occasions.
While at Willkie, where Mr. Rose spent 17 years, he was a member of the Litigation department and the Securities Litigation and Enforcement practice group. He previously served as a law clerk for the Honorable Frederic Block in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Mr. Rose received his J.D. from Cornell Law School, magna cum laude, where he was selected to the Order of the Coif and was Senior Notes Editor of the Cornell Law Review.
