William D. Nussbaum
Bill Nussbaum handles complex litigation for colleges, universities and other institutions of learning that are facing sensitive disputes around issues such as racial and gender discrimination and employee misconduct. His skill at managing legal teams to present difficult cases comes from 37 years of experience handling general civil litigation, including more than 80 jury and many more non-jury trials and injunction proceedings in federal and state courts, as well as arbitrations and other contested matters throughout the United States and overseas.
Bill's clients in higher education, telecommunications, insurance and numerous other industries have also depended on his legal counsel for matters involving breach of contract, personal injury, insurance coverage, health care and customs law. Before he went into private practice in 1984, Bill honed his trial skills as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, where he tried criminal cases and presented hundreds of cases to grand juries. He twice received the Department of Justice Special Achievement Award.
The depth of Bill's trial experience is reinforced by his selection as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, an organization whose members must have at least 15 years of active trial work and are highly regarded lawyers in their state.
