The Editor interviews William F. Maderer, Partner, Saiber Schlesinger Satz & Goldstein, LLC.
Editor: Would you summarize your professional background?
Maderer: After graduating from N.Y.U. Law School in 1973, I joined the firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP where I spent about a year and a half as a litigation associate. I had always been interested in being a federal prosecutor, so I applied for and obtained a position as an Assistant United States Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey. I spent six years in that office, the last two as chief of the Special Prosecutions Division, which prosecutes all types of white collar crime, including cases of political corruption. I was there in the mid 1970s, and there was no shortage of work for that unit.
I left the U.S. Attorneys Office in 1980 to join Saiber Schlesinger Satz & Goldstein. At that time, the firm included six attorneys. We now have 54.
