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
government, and participated in the
London program while an undergraduate.
