St. Lawrence News


The American Lawyer has named Sean M. Murphy '91, a partner at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, as a "Fab 50 Young Litigator," an elite group of litigators whom the magazine recognizes as the top 50 litigators in the United States under age 45. Murphy, 37, is a securities litigator in the New York office of Milbank.

The magazine states, "Murphy represents giant mutual fund and financial services companies, with a blue-chip client list that includes Fidelity Management & Research Company, Capital Research & Management Company, American Century Companies, and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. In the last two years he has won 12 complex securities matters for his clients. He won a dismissal for Fidelity in a revenue-sharing class action; and co-led the defense of American Century in an excessive fee case that plaintiffs dropped one week before trial. In 2005 Murphy was on the trial team that successfully defended AllianceBernstein Holding L.P. in a $3 billion Enron-related lawsuit by Florida's pension fund."

In addition to being named a leading securities lawyer by The American Lawyer, Murphy has been recognized as a leading securities litigator by Chambers USA and was recently selected as one of Lawdragon's "500 New Stars."

He received his law degree with honors from Albany Law School, where he was an associate editor of the Albany Law Review. He earned his St. Lawrence degree in government, and participated in the London program while an undergraduate.
