Veteran Litigator David Wallace Joins Rooney Nimmo

Veteran Litigator David Wallace Joins Rooney Nimmo

June 3, 2021 – New York, NY – International corporate law firm Rooney Nimmo is delighted to announce that David Wallace has joined the firm.

For more than thirty years, David Wallace has advised companies large and small in a range of complex commercial and product liability disputes, including bet-the-company litigation involving iconic brand names. His experience is nationwide and has involved trials without precedent and with enormous sums and reputations at stake.

David has handled some of the most controversial, socially significant trials of the past quarter-century, including one of the largest civil RICO cases ever mounted by the federal government. He has won trial rulings rarely granted, including directed verdict — a feat he has accomplished twice.

Feedback on David’s work by clients, peers, and other observers praises his high-caliber advocacy that is fierce and tenacious, a likeability factor that is invaluable in front of a jury, and “tour de force” cross-examinations.

“David is a practical lawyer with an exceptional and effective style of advocacy,” said Allan Rooney, Founding Partner. “David brings an impressive swagger to trial law, backed up by years of experience that will give our clients confidence during challenging situations. We are delighted to have him as part of the team.”

Before Rooney Nimmo, David practiced independently, following stints at a pair of litigation powerhouses — Chadbourne & Parke, where his career began, then Herbert Smith Freehills.

David earned degrees in law and international affairs from Georgetown University.
