Seth Kruglak has joined McGuireWoods’ litigation practice as a partner in New York, bringing two decades of experience representing corporate clients and individuals in high-stakes disputes and complex investigations.

Kruglak has represented major corporations, financial institutions, insurers, utilities, private equity funds, individuals and other clients in litigation and international and domestic arbitrations, including trying matters to verdict in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. His practice also includes representing clients in enforcement actions, suits brought by and against the government, and government and congressional investigations. In addition, Kruglak advises companies on the impact of securities and other regulations in connection with environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

Kruglak joins McGuireWoods from Norton Rose Fulbright. He is a 2003 graduate of Columbia Law School, where he was a senior editor of the Columbia Law Review.

“Seth is a highly accomplished and versatile litigator who enhances our client service capabilities in multiple areas, including financial services, energy and insurance recovery,” said Noreen Kelly, deputy managing partner and head of McGuireWoods’ litigation practice.

Robert Muckenfuss, chair of the firm’s Financial Services & Securities Enforcement Department, added, “Seth’s experience representing high-profile clients in complicated litigation and sensitive investigations makes our national practice even stronger.”

McGuireWoods was among an exclusive group of law firms that corporate counsel identified as a commercial litigation powerhouse in “BTI Litigation Outlook 2024: Navigating Litigation Spending in the New Unpredictable World.” Law360 has twice named McGuireWoods a “Banking Practice Group of the Year” for excellence representing financial services institutions in litigation, regulatory and transactional matters.

“McGuireWoods is known nationally for excellence in financial services and commercial litigation and its team-oriented approach to client service,” Kruglak said. “I look forward to putting my experience to work for the firm and our clients.”

Said Jeffrey Chapman, managing partner for the firm’s New York office: “Seth is an important addition as we continue to grow our client service capabilities in New York and we are delighted to welcome him.”
