Law 360 Interviews Three Elsberg Baker & Maruri Partners on Firm Opening


NEW YORK – February 22, 2024 – On February 21, 2024, Law 360 interviewed partners Michael Duke, Jared Ruocco, and Vivek Tata about the launch of the firm.

"It's one of these situations where we're not running away from anything, we're running toward an amazing new opportunity, which for us is really once in a lifetime," Ruocco said. "We're meeting with a lot of extremely qualified recruits who are going to help fill our associate ranks."

Tata reflected on the new opportunity, “I have a background from Silicon Valley before I went to law school, so the idea of doing something new and exciting and different is something that really drives me."

"I've always wanted to build something," Duke explained. "I like creating something new. And that was something that really drew me to branch off and do something that scratched that itch."

Ruocco emphasized, "We're continuing to provide top-of-the-market service to our clients whom we transferred over, focusing on new business development opportunities, and, at the same time, beginning to establish with the recruits that have already come aboard and our other staff members the unique firm culture that we set out to create in launching this firm."
