Law firm Bracewell & Giuliani, which has offices in Dubai, London, and the US, and former mayor of New York Rudolph W. Giuliani have parted ways “by amicable agreement,” it was announced this week.
No reason for the parting of ways was given but the law firm confirmed the 71-year-old’s name will also be dropped from the firm’s company name and, going forward, it will be known simply as Bracewell.
“After a decade in which Rudy helped us build what is now a very successful and thriving New York office, we thank Rudy and wish him our very best,” said Mark C. Evans, firm-wide managing partner. “Our New York office and our white collar practice will continue to have tremendous leadership through our long-time New York Managing Partner, Daniel S. Connolly, who joined the firm with Rudy in 2005, and has substantial prosecutorial experience."
“One of the main goals I had in joining Bracewell was to help the firm build a strong presence in the New York legal market,” said Giuliani. “By any measure, we have achieved that objective and I’m proud of the success the New York office has had and will continue to have. Bracewell is a great firm and although I will miss my friends and colleagues at the firm, it’s time for me to move on to other challenges.”
