New York

Barbara Moses handles complex business disputes in state and federal courts nationwide, in arbitration, and in administrative proceedings. She has extensive experience in securities fraud and shareholder rights litigation, securities regulatory proceedings, class and derivative actions, partnership disputes, and copyright, trademark and trade secrets litigation. She also handles attorney disciplinary matters, conducts internal corporate investigations, and serves on the American Arbitration Association’s national panel of neutrals.

Barbara joined the firm as a Partner in 2002, and assumed the role of Counsel in 2011 in order to devote more time to her academic responsibilities. She is a Visiting Clinical Professor at Seton Hall University School of Law, where she directs the Constitutional and Civil Litigation Clinic. From 2009 to 2011 she taught a full-year, first-year course in Lawyering at New York University Law School.  

She has appeared on ABC’s Nightline as a securities litigation expert and has been a frequent speaker at CLE programs, including ALI-ABA’s Broker-Dealer Regulation course, which she co-chaired from 1997 to 2006, and NYCLA's Winning Cases in Federal Court. Barbara has been listed in the New York Super Lawyers – Metro Edition every year since 2006.

Outside of her clinical work, Barbara's recent pro bono work includes a series of amicus briefs, in conjunction with the Brennan Center for Justice, in national security/civil liberties cases growing out of the “war on terror.” See Clapper v. Amnesty Int'l USA, 133 S. Ct. 1138 (2013) (challenging use of standing doctrine to bar merits review of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act amendments); Mohamed v. Jeppeson Dataplan, Inc., 614 F.3d 1070 (9th Cir. 2010) (en banc) (challenging use of “state secrets” doctrine to dismiss extraordinary rendition claims).

Barbara is an elected member of the American Law Institute and the immediate past president of the New York County Lawyers’ Association, where she continues to serve on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. She is also a delegate to the New York State Bar Association, and a member of the NYSBA Nominating Committee.
