Neil Wertlieb Retires from Milbank to Launch Wertlieb Law Corp
Corporate Partner Neil Wertlieb retired from the law firm of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP on December 31, 2016 after over 21 years at the firm. Effective January 1, 2017, Mr. Wertlieb launched Wertlieb Law Corp, where he will provide expert witness and expert consulting services to parties or their attorneys in litigation and arbitration matters. The two primary areas of focus of Wertlieb Law Corp are disputes involving business transactions and corporate governance, and cases involving attorney malpractice and attorney ethics. Among other things, his new practice builds upon his experience at Milbank, where his practice focused on corporate governance and business transactions (including acquisitions, securities offerings and restructurings), and his involvement with the ethics bar, including service as Chair of the State Bar of California’s Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct and as an officer of the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Professional Responsibility and Ethics Committee.
