Damian Cavaleri and John Curley Named to Euromoney Legal Media Group's Inaugural Rising Stars Shortlist


Hoguet Newman Regal & Kenney, LLP is proud to announce that partners Damian Cavaleri and John Curley have been named to Euromoney Legal Media Group’s inaugural Rising Stars shortlist. This national award celebrates leading attorneys under the age of 40 across a number of practice areas. Damian, who was shortlisted in the Best in Litigation: Trial Lawyer category, and John, who was shortlisted in the Best in White Collar Crime category, were recognized for their professional accomplishments, advocacy, and influence within their fields.

Damian represents clients in all capacities and has experience litigating and arbitrating a wide breadth of disputes with expertise in business and employment litigation. He handles all aspects of litigation, including discovery, motion practice, trial, and appeal, and has litigated in federal and state courts. He recently secured a jury trial win against Mastercard International on behalf of a Jordanian financial services firm, where a jury awarded his client the entirety of the amount sought at trial – $2.78 million – and awarded nothing to Mastercard on its counterclaims.

John focuses his practice on complex business and securities litigation and white collar enforcement proceedings. He represents clients in securities-related regulatory investigations and proceedings, including investigations by FINRA, the CFTC, the SEC, and the Department of Justice, and also represents clients in civil securities litigation and complex commercial disputes, including RICO and securities fraud. Recently, he successfully defended an equities trader against unfounded insider trading allegations; a FINRA panel dismissed the proceeding in its entirety following a three-day disciplinary hearing. He also defended clients in connection with international money laundering allegations and defended a former director of a publicly traded company in securities litigation.
