September 21, 2005

NEW YORK (Sept. 21, 2005) Bracewell & Giuliani LLP is pleased to welcome the addition of three high-profile partners to the firm's New York office.

International business litigator Kenneth A. Caruso and commercial litigator Marvin R. Lange have joined Bracewell as partners in the Trial Section, and energy finance partner Timothy M. Toy has joined in the Business Group.

"What these attorneys are bringing to Bracewell will enhance our worldwide reputation in our corporate and litigation practices," explained Patrick Oxford, managing partner of Bracewell & Giuliani. "Their longtime success in the New York legal community will be helpful in building our profile in New York."

Caruso's practice focuses on civil and criminal litigation and investigations usually involving international and transnational matters. In his 27 years of practice, Caruso has worked extensively on matters involving multi-jurisdictional asset-recovery investigations, securities litigation, the U.S. Patriot Act and U.S. Treasury asset-blocking regulations.

Caruso is well known as a leading expert in discovery in the U.S. for use in foreign proceedings. His expertise with international claims litigation includes matters in Europe, South America, Cayman Islands, and the Middle East.

Early in his career, Caruso served as an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He also practiced in the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, where he served as deputy to Mayor Giuliani. He has been in private practice for the last 20 years.

Lange's practice focuses on the resolution of complex commercial disputes in the U.S. and abroad. He has represented clients in state and federal court and in the arbitration and mediation of cases arising out of business and financial disputes.

Lange brings to the firm more than three decades of legal experience and his practice also includes the representation of plaintiffs and defendants throughout the country in antitrust cases involving issues such as monopolization, price-fixing, tying and the legality of mergers. He has counseled clients in various industries concerning compliance with all aspects of the antitrust laws.

Daniel S. Meyers and Jeffrey I. Wasserman have also joined the firm as associates and will work closely with Caruso and Lange.

Toy's practice focuses on energy-related finance, mergers and acquisitions, and complex structured finance transactions for major domestic and international energy companies. In his 24 years of practice, he has also worked on financial transactions for utility and telecommunication companies as well as representing underwriters and equity investors.

While most often associated with his work with public utilities in public offerings and acquisitions, Toy advises audit committees and independent directors, handles sale and leaseback transactions and gives expert testimony.

In 2004, Toy was listed among The BTI Client Service All-Star Team for Lawyers as "a stand-out attorney who delivers unsurpassed client service."
