3 Ex-Prosecutors Form White Collar Litigation Boutique

Law360, Miami (March 03, 2014, 8:55 PM ET) — Three former federal

prosecutors with experience in tax, securities and health care have

joined forces to create Marcus Neiman & Rashbaum LLP, a South

Florida white collar litigation boutique firm with offices in Miami and Fort

Lauderdale, the firm announced Monday.

Jeffrey Marcus, Jeffrey Neiman and Daniel Rashbaum, who met while

working several years ago at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern

District of Florida, opened the doors of their new firm last week.

Collectively, they say they have tried more than 75 cases to verdict.

“For me, personally, being able to partner with two very talented white

collar lawyers with the experience we all have was a tremendous

opportunity,” Marcus, who most recently headed the white collar group at

Kenny Nachwalter PA, told Law360.

Marcus began his practice in Boston, where he worked on a number of

large health care and pharmaceutical cases, including a large anti-
kickback case involving TAP Pharmaceuticals. He moved to Miami to

work in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida,

where he was part of the economic crimes division and worked on a

number of corporate health care cases. After five years as a prosecutor,

he left for Kenny Nachwalter.

Neiman, who most recently was in private practice, is a tax specialist

who worked for nine years in the tax division of the U.S. Department of

Justice before heading to the Southern District of Florida. He has

experience in federal criminal tax, offshore tax enforcement and

voluntary disclosures.

Rashbaum “was born to be a defense attorney,” according to Neiman.

Until he joined forces with Neiman and Marcus, Rashbaum was a

principal at the Miami office of New York litigation boutique Kobre & Kim

LLP. He has experience in securities fraud cases, export violation issues

and health care cases.

In addition to the three name partners, the new firm has three additional

attorneys and is likely to grow, according to Marcus.

He said that as a boutique firm, it can take on clients without having to

worry about conflicts with institutional clients, an issue that often pops up

at large corporate firms.

“We don’t have conflicts, so it’s easier for us to take on litigation matters,”

Marcus said. “We’re small in number, but at the same time, we have

enough people to handle the select number of cases we take.”

Rashbaum said that their experience as former prosecutors brings them

some credibility in the courtroom.

He said that as defense lawyers, “We can look at it through the lens that

the prosecutors are using. It helps us prepare our clients better and

gives us added credibility when we need to advocate for them.”
