New York/ Florida — February 1, 2024—Kudman Trachten Aloe Posner LLP announces the opening of a new office in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and the addition of renowned white-collar criminal defense lawyer Tama Beth Kudman, who will be dividing her time between Florida and New York.
Ms. Kudman focuses her national practice on government enforcement, corporate compliance, internal investigations, state and federal criminal and white-collar litigation, FCA defense and complex commercial litigation. She has significant experience in the defense of criminal, civil and administrative matters, with a concentration in the area of healthcare.
Her past clients have included senior executives, professional services providers, politicians, sports figures, members of the clergy, and reputed organized crime figures, among other well-known individuals and corporations. Ms. Kudman was most recently a partner of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP and co-chair of their Government Enforcement, Compliance & White-Collar litigation group.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Tama joining us,” said Barry A. Posner, chair of KTAP’s corporate department. “While her list of wins is impressive, even more so are the number of cases that no one has heard of because, due to her diligent investigatory efforts and powers of persuasion, they were never prosecuted. And with one talented Kudman sibling already here – Ms. Kudman’s brother, Stuart, is a founding partner of the firm – Tama is part of the family, and her arrival is a welcome home.”
“As New York and Florida comprise two of my biggest markets, this move provides a larger and more powerful platform” Tama said. “I look forward to collaborating with Barry Posner to provide comprehensive client service on healthcare matters. Additionally, incredible synergies exist between my practice and the firm’s employment, tax and corporate work, which I hope to explore and expand upon with my new colleagues.”
Ms. Kudman has been recognized by Chambers USA in Litigation: White Collar Crime & Government Investigations in Florida. She was appointed to serve on the Federal Magistrate Judge Merit Selection Panel for the Southern District of Florida in 2017 and 2019. She was honored as “Lawyer of the Year” in West Palm Beach in 2020 and 2023 for White-Collar Criminal Defense and again in 2022 and 2024 for General Criminal Defense by The Best Lawyers in America®. She has also been selected to the Florida Super Lawyers list since 2015.
