Oren J. Warshavsky serves as a co-leader of BakerHostetler’s International Asset Tracing and Recovery team, and leads BakerHostetler’s Copyright Content and Platforms team. He is a litigator specializing in multi-jurisdictional proceedings and complex intellectual property matters.
Oren has achieved more than $9 billion in monetary recoveries for his clients, obtained injunctive relief in numerous cases, and successfully defended clients in defeating claims asserted in federal and state courts for complex commercial matters, patent, trademark, copyright, bankruptcy, asset recovery matters and commercial disputes.
He has been an integral part of the team representing the trustee of the Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) in the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Securities. Oren has overseen and worked with teams of lawyers in the United States and around the world to trace and recover assets; the recovery has been unprecedented, totaling more than $13 billion dollars.
The protracted, decades-long investigation and recovery in dozens of related international cases has demonstrated Oren’s ability to work diligently and resourcefully across multiple jurisdictions.
Oren’s proficiency as an attorney has won him accolades, including being recognized by Chambers USA, The Legal 500 (both for intellectual property and international litigation), and Best Lawyers in America.
Oren has been voted among the Top 100 attorneys in New York on numerous occasions, and his cross-border, asset-recovery accomplishments have earned him recognition in Who’s Who Legal in Asset Recovery — one of only 36 attorneys in the United States to have achieved this honor.
