Moshe Horn has earned a national reputation as a trial lawyer as well as an insightful trial strategist, and is skilled in the nuances of jury research and selection in both civil and criminal matters. Before joining Seeger Weiss in 2005, Moshe spent a decade as an Assistant District Attorney (ADA) in the Manhattan District Attorney's office where he tried more than fifty jury trials to verdict, achieving one of the highest conviction rates in the Manhattan office. He achieved successful outcomes in cases of both violent and white collar crime, including homicides, sex crimes, kidnapping, money laundering and extortion. In addition, he served as a member of the Sex Crimes Unit and the Asian Gang Unit, as well as a domestic violence coordinator in his trial bureau, and his work resulted in numerous grand jury indictments, many of which required advanced wiretapping techniques and the use of undercover officers. He also regularly participated in the office trial advocacy training program and supervised many young lawyers in their development as litigators.
Moshe transferred this vast trial knowledge into the practice of products liability and mass tort litigation at Kaye Scholer, a leading New York law firm, where he worked on products liability and commercial and white collar litigation matters. At Kaye Scholer Moshe served as a primary trial strategist, bearing active responsibility for the preparation and execution of numerous focus groups and mock trials, as well as the conception and development of advanced trial graphics and jury questionnaires. During his tenure there, Moshe served on the trial teams for numerous mass tort trials including pharmaceutical, asbestos and commercial trials.
To continue his focus on mass tort litigation, Moshe joined Seeger Weiss, and was a member of the trial team that achieved a $47.5 million verdict against Merck for a client's Vioxx related injuries. He contributes broadly to the firm's commercial litigation practice and handles private criminal and personal injury matters as well. He regularly interfaces with jury consultants and conducts mock jury exercises, and consequently can share his insight about juries with current clients.
