Welcoming Nationally Renowned White Collar Defense Partners Kenneth Breen and Phara Guberman

We are pleased to welcome partners Kenneth M. Breen and Phara A. Guberman to our White Collar Defense and Investigations Group in New York. 

Ken and Phara are highly experienced trial attorneys who join Cadwalader from Paul Hastings, where Ken most recently served as head of Paul Hastings’ New York white collar group after 10 years as chair of the firm’s global investigations and white collar defense team. Their practice focuses on defending corporations and senior executives in high-stakes investigations, trials, and appeals.

Together, they recently achieved major back-to-back, precedent-setting victories for clients in two of the highest profile white collar matters in the United States: U.S. v. Connolly, the major LIBOR case, and U.S. v. Gibson, which focused on accounting and securities fraud. 

Ken is a first-chair trial attorney who has been consistently recognized among the leading white-collar attorneys in the country. Prior to private practice, Ken served as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, where he was Deputy Chief of the Business and Securities Fraud Section, and in the U.S. Department of Justice's Tax Division. He has tried 48 cases to verdict and argued 12 appeals as a federal prosecutor and defense attorney. 

Phara is a highly regarded, versatile litigator considered a next-generation leader in the field. She was recently honored by Benchmark Litigation as one of the Top 250 Women in Litigation and by Global Investigations Review as one of 100 notable Women in Investigations.
