On July 13, 2009, Zuckerman Spaeder LLP partner Eric R. Delinsky was named a “rising star” in The National Law Journal’s “40 Under 40” feature. In selecting Mr. Delinsky, The National Law Journal noted his high-profile settlement last year for the former chief financial officer for Fannie Mae and his decisive victory representing an international insurer in a case involving the staged theft of paintings by Monet and Picasso.
Mr. Delinsky’s experience ranges from representing some of the nation’s most prominent business leaders against allegations of fraud to the representation of institutions and companies in important civil litigation. He also has defended government officials and contractors in corruption investigations and related proceedings and has represented corporate officers in executive compensation disputes.
Prior to joining Zuckerman Spaeder, Delinsky served as a law clerk to the Honorable Joseph L. Tauro of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and for several years, he was an adjunct professor of law at his alma mater, Georgetown University Law Center. While a federal public defender, he defended many clients against white-collar criminal charges, including allegations of securities and accounting fraud, money laundering, mail and wire fraud, and tax fraud. Mr. Delinsky was previously recognized onWashingtonian magazine’s list of “Young Guns.”
According to The National Law Journal, the Washington-area rising stars were selected by the editors based on nominations and reporting. The editors chose 40 individuals who have already made their marks in the Washington-area on private practice, in government agencies, on Capitol Hill or with public interest groups.
Zuckerman Spaeder LLP was recently selected as a finalist for “Litigation Boutique of the Year” by The American Lawyer.
