International Disputes Counsel Timothy J. McCarthy Joins Dykema’s Dallas Office

June 17, 2019

Dykema, a leading national law firm, today announced the addition of Timothy J. McCarthy to its Commercial Litigation Practice Group as a Senior Counsel in the firm’s Dallas office. He joins Dykema after two decades of practicing at various firms in New York City, including Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, White & Case, and most recently, Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLP.

In his practice, McCarthy contests disputes across a broad range of subject matter areas and jurisdictions and focuses on international disputes before American courts and international arbitral tribunals. He has represented U.S. and international multinationals and middle-market companies, banks, funds and investment managers, closely-held concerns, and individual investors and executives, in commercial cases, financial and investment disputes, securities and accounting fraud matters, bankruptcy proceedings, and executive employment disputes.

McCarthy’s clients and cases have spanned more than 25 countries, common and civil law jurisdictions, and a broad range of arbitral rule sets. He has acted in some of the highest-profile and highest-value cases of this century, including the Bush v. Gore 2000 election litigation, the Enron bankruptcy, and the civil litigations arising out the terrorist attacks of September 11th. He has also represented and defended U.S. and international corporate clients, as well as individual clients, in white-collar criminal proceedings, internal investigations, and regulatory enforcement matters. McCarthy has past experience as a corporate transactional attorney, including Islamic finance, and ongoing experience with innovative dispute funding strategies.

“Tim is a highly credentialed, pedigreed lawyer with two decades of experience practicing at some of the most sophisticated law firms in New York City and we are thrilled that he has elected to relocate his international arbitration practice to Dallas and join Dykema,” said Chris Kratovil, Managing Member of Dykema’s Dallas Office. “There are not many, if any, attorneys in Dallas that are doing the type of work that Tim does.”

McCarthy received a J.D. and LL.M. from the Duke University School of Law and a B.A. in Political Science and Russian from the University of Notre Dame. He served as Law Clerk to the Honorable Gerald Bard Tjoflat at the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. He is admitted in New York, and is not admitted in Texas, and will be practicing from both Dallas and New York.
