Brooke Cucinella joined Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, LLP as a litigation partner in September of 2018.  Prior to joining Simpson Thacher, Ms. Cucinella was an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2012 to August 2018.  At the time she left the Office, she was a senior member of the Securities and Commodities Task Force.  Ms. Cucinella has significant trial experience, including, among others, the conviction of a pill mill doctor involved in the distribution of millions of dollars of illegally prescribed narcotics; the trial of Brian Coll, a Rikers Island correction officer who was convicted of murdering an inmate and obstructing the investigation into that murder; and a multi-defendant murder trial involving the conviction of the head of a violent gang known as Sex, Money & Murder.  Ms. Cucinella has also prosecuted numerous insider-trading cases, including Sean Stewart, an investment banker convicted of tipping his father with inside information, and William “Billy” Walters, a well-known sports gambler, in a $43 million insider trading case – the largest insider case brought against an individual in the Southern District of New York.  Most recently, Ms. Cucinella tried and convicted, following a five-week jury trial, four defendants in connection with an insider trading scheme involving the theft of Government information that was provided to a hedge fund through a political intelligence consultant.  At Simpson Thacher, Ms. Cucinella intends to continue her trial practice, as well as focusing on government and internal investigations.

Ms. Cucinella graduated magna cum laude from Fordham Law School in 2006, and began her legal career at O’Melveny & Myers, where she worked from 2006 to 2012.  She was a counsel at O’Melveny in 2012 when she left to join the Office.  Prior to law school, Ms. Cucinella taught in Chicago and New Orleans with Teach for America.
