NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch LLP announced today that Ronald Aranoff, a 20-year antitrust, litigation and trial veteran has joined the firm as a partner in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group of its New York office.
Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch LLP co-founding partner David H. Wollmuth notes that "Ron has been a rising star in the plaintiffs' antitrust bar, and we believe combining Ron's stature and experience with the premier resources of our firm will provide an outstanding platform for handling the most important antitrust matters."
At the same time, co-founding partner William A. Maher says, "Ron is one of the rare lawyers equally adept at trying cases, negotiating settlements and drafting court papers. Ron will help to further distinguish us as a premier law firm capable of handling the full range of commercial cases against any adversary."
Mr. Aranoff has led complex litigation for clients in a wide array of areas, and has served as Lead Counsel and on Executive Committees of some of the leading recent class actions throughout the United States.
"Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch has many exceptional and talented lawyers in a wide array of disciplines, including, litigation, corporate, bankruptcy, real estate and tax. They are widely respected for their tenacity, skill and integrity. To its credit, the firm has grown exponentially at a time when other firms have downsized. I look forward to helping the firm expand its antitrust and general commercial practices," Mr. Aranoff said.
Stephen Neuwirth, chair of the antitrust and competition litigation practice at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, observes: "I have had the great privilege of working closely with Ron Aranoff for almost a decade in a number of important antitrust cases, as well as with Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch on other matters. I believe this is an ideal match that will offer great firepower and depth of talent in the antitrust space."
Mr. Aranoff spent fourteen years at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, where he was co-chair of the firm's antitrust practice. He also was an Assistant District Attorney with the Kings County District Attorneys' office, and thereafter associated with Slotnick, Shapiro & Crocker LLP (now part of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney P.C). Mr. Aranoff earned his law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1995, where he was a David Berg Academic Scholar.
