Robert Ullmann, partner and chair of the Government Investigations and White Collar Defense practice group at Nutter McClennen & Fish has been appointed to serve as an associate justice in the Superior Court of Massachusetts. Ullmann will begin his duties the end of April. Jonathan Kotlier, a partner in the Litigation Department and member of the Government Investigations and White Collar Crime practice group will take over as chair of the practice group.
"For the past 18 years, I've had the privilege of practicing law here at Nutter, with extremely talented and supportive colleagues,” said Ullmann. “I will miss everyone here, but wanted at some point to return to public service, and I'm grateful that Governor Patrick has given me the opportunity to serve on the Superior Court."
“Bob’s friends and colleagues at Nutter are going to miss him tremendously but, given Bob’s judgment, temperament and experience, we have absolutely no doubt that he will be an outstanding addition to the bench,” said Deborah Manus, co-managing partner of Nutter. “We look forward to having Jonathan lead our highly regarded Government Investigations and White Collar Defense practice into the future.”
Jonathan Kotlier came to Nutter nine years ago from the U.S. Attorney’s Office where he served as the chief of the Economic Crimes Unit. While there, he gained extensive experience prosecuting sophisticated white collar criminal cases involving securities and investor fraud as well as health care fraud, tax fraud and environmental crimes. Since joining Nutter, Kotlier has represented several corporations and individuals in white collar criminal and complex civil cases and investigations involving alleged securities fraud, health care fraud, foreign contracting fraud, and False Claims Act violations.
