Adam Goldstein is a partner in the firm’s Washington D.C. office.  He is a member of the firm’s Anti-Terrorism practice group and Complex and Commercial Litigation practice group.

Adam has more than a decade of experience representing large corporations and financial institutions in all phases of complex litigation in state and federal courts throughout the United States.  He has successfully defended large financial institutions in class actions and other lawsuits brought by institutional “opt-out” investors asserting violations of federal and state securities laws, in cases involving residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) issued prior to the 2008 financial crisis, and in complex commercial disputes for fraud and breach of contract.  In recent years, Mr. Goldstein’s practice has focused on dispositive motion practice and expert discovery; he has often been tasked by his clients to depose the opposing side’s most important expert witnesses and work closely with his client’s key experts.  In his extensive prior pro bono work, Mr. Goldstein successfully obtained a multimillion-dollar judgment on behalf of 15 employees of a NYC-based Korean restaurant where, following a bench trial, a federal judge ordered the restaurant’s owner and his family to unwind multiple real estate conveyances, permitting Mr Goldstein’s clients to collect from the defendant on a prior judgment for underpayment of wages.  He also successfully obtained complete dismissal of a complaint for breach of contract on behalf of a small immigrant-owned organic farm based in upstate New York against the largest agricultural credit union in the Northeast United States.

Prior to joining Sparacino PLLC, Mr. Goldstein was a litigator at Shearman & Sterling LLP in New York, and he also practiced in the litigation and corporate bankruptcy & restructuring groups at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago, Illinois.

Adam is licensed to practice law by the New York State Bar.  Until he is licensed to practice law by the Washington, D.C. Bar, Mr. Goldstein works under the supervision of partners of the Firm who are licensed to practice law in Washington, D.C.
