Bracewell’s Roslynn Mauskopf spoke with the New York Law Journal about why she chose Bracewell to move into private practice for the first time in her distinguished career and brining her government experience to the firm.
Mauskopf said she brings her long government experience and a “unique perspective” to help companies navigate “often sensitive” investigations, enforcements and regulatory matters.
“This is a very new and very exciting adventure,” she said.
She chose to move to Bracewell after her retirement from the judiciary on January 31 because of the firm’s stellar government enforcement and investigations practice and “strong reputation” in numerous business sectors. She considered a number of firms, she said, but was impressed by the firm’s collaborative culture.
A number of Mauskopf’s former colleagues work at Bracewell, including Barbara Jones, a partner in New York who is a former US District Court judge in the Southern District of New York, and Daniel Connolly, who is managing partner of the New York office. Mauskopf worked with both of them at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, where she started her career in 1982.
