Phillips Nizer welcomed commercial litigator and trial lawyer Julian D. Perlman as a partner in the firm’s Litigation, Antitrust, and Fashion Law practices in its New York office.

Mr. Perlman joins Phillips Nizer from the New York office of BakerHostetler LLP. He began his legal career with Proskauer Rose LLP.

Representing businesses, entrepreneurs and investors in inter- and intra-company disputes, Mr. Perlman has significant experience in handling trial and arbitration matters to their conclusions. He represents emerging companies, executives, and artists on a full range of litigation matters, and advises clients regarding corporate formation and governance issues, shareholder relationships and agreements, intellectual property rights, competition, and general employment questions.

Mr. Perlman has been particularly active in handling matters for fashion designers, manufacturers and retailers, consumer goods manufacturers and retailers, high-net-worth individuals, producers, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators and other visual artists, as well as non-profit entities and trade associations.

Mr. Perlman previously served as a lead attorney in a noteworthy copyright lawsuit by a class of visual artists claiming infringement by the Google Book Project. At BakerHostetler, he was a member of the trustee’s team of attorneys who handled the recovery and distribution of over $11 billion from the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme, and while at Proskauer, played a key role in winning a unanimous jury decision for the ATP World Tour in a far-reaching antitrust verdict for professional sports.
