Newark-based Calcagni & Kanefsky LLP is continuing to bolster its team of white-collar and commercial litigators, welcoming counsel Joshua Sherman and associate Corey Repasy.
Sherman joins CK with significant experience in regulatory and government securities enforcement. He served as senior counsel within the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s Enforcement Department, handling matters involving allegations of fraud, unauthorized transactions, supervision, outside business activities and private securities transactions. Before his post at FINRA, Sherman served as assistant section chief of the Securities Fraud Prosecution Section of the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Division of Law, handling and supervising securities litigation and investigations on behalf of the New Jersey Bureau of Securities, the state regulator for New Jersey’s securities industry.
“CK continues to find the right balance of talent for its growing team of commercial and white-collar litigators,” Partner Thomas Calcagni said. “With his distinguished background at FINRA and within the Attorney General’s Office, Josh adds further dimension and depth to our regulatory defense practice. In a post-COVID landscape, financial institutions and professionals are facing increased enforcement and compliance activity. Josh is a very welcome addition to our CK team servicing our financial clients, both institutions and professionals.”
Also newly hired to the firm is Repasy, who began her legal career as a judicial clerk for Judge David Ironson of the Superior Court of New Jersey and most recently worked with an international litigation firm.
“2023 was pivotal year for CK,” Partner Eric Kanefsky said. “Across the firm, we obtained many victories for our clients, particularly in high-stakes business disputes and government defense matters. Sustaining success at that level necessitates growth, and Josh and Corey represent the very best — with the promise of more to come.”
