Barbara Jones and Paul Shechtman Join Bracewell

Judge Barbara S. Jones and Paul Shechtman have joined Bracewell in New York as partners in the white collar practice.

Theresa J. Lee and Maggie Lynaugh will also join the firm as associates in New York.

All four attorneys came from Zuckerman Spaeder.

Bracewell’s white collar practice has been one of the firm’s core practices for more than a decade.

In addition to her advisory role in white collar cases, Jones will continue her arbitration and mediation practice and service as a court appointed officer for special master, receivership and monitorship positions.

“New York is the firm’s second largest office, and the white collar practice has been part of its foundation from the beginning,” said Bracewell Managing Partner Mark C. Evans. “The addition of Barbara, Paul and their team could not be a better fit for our clients and the New York office.”

“I have known Barbara and Paul for many years and respect them both tremendously,” said Daniel S. Connolly, managing partner of Bracewell’s New York office. “They are among the most elite in the New York bar, and I couldn’t be more excited to have them join the firm as my partners.”

“Paul and I are excited that Bracewell has asked us, and two talented associates, to join its New York office,” said Judge Barbara S. Jones. “We look forward to contributing to a firm that has a reputation for zealous advocacy and professional excellence.”

For sixteen years, Barbara S. Jones served as a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

She also spent more than 20 years as a prosecutor.

Prior to her nomination to the bench in 1995, she was the Chief Assistant to Robert M. Morgenthau, then the District Attorney of New York County. She began her career as a special attorney in the Honors Program of the U.S. Department of Justice assigned to the organized crime unit of the Criminal Division.

Paul Shechtman has more than 30 years of experience drawn from government service and private practice. He represents individuals, corporations, and municipal agencies in federal and state criminal and regulatory investigations. He has experience in matters relating to antitrust law, health care fraud, insider trading, and other complex criminal cases.
