Johnson Fistel Names New Partner

The firm is pleased to announce that W. Scott Holleman has been elevated to partner effective January 1, 2018. “Scott embodies the firm’s core values of trust, hard work, determination, integrity, and excellence in everything we do,” said Frank J. Johnson, one of the firm’s founding partners. “He was responsible for opening the firm’s New York office and has played a pivotal role in our success in corporate takeover litigation.”

Mr. Holleman, admitted to practice in both New York and California, has spent his entire career fighting for justice on behalf of shareholders, consumers, family business owners, and civil rights abuse victims. He has also represented small companies in high stakes complex business cases against larger, more dominant enterprises.

Since joining the firm in September 2013, Mr. Holleman has continued to successfully prosecute misconduct in state and federal courts across the country. To that end, Mr. Holleman has helped recover tens of millions of dollars for shareholders and has secured additional types of relief to ensure that transactions are adequately negotiated and that shareholders passing on deals are adequately informed.
