TU Law alumnus Bill Carmody of Susman Godfrey in New York has recently been featured by legal media website Lawdragon in a series that features lawyers who produce vast amounts of business for their firms.
The story describes Carmody as an out-of-the-box thinker with infectious joie de vivre. “Carmody has amassed a collection of trial wins and huge settlements as striking as the modern art splashed across the New York office interiors he designed. He recently recovered record settlements of $465M for the whistleblower in the Novartis qui tam litigation, and federal courts routinely appoint him as lead counsel in America’s biggest antitrust class actions.”
The story goes on to credit Carmody’s unconventional career path for making him a legend including a degree from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and a law degree from The University of Tulsa College of Law (TU Law). “I had planned on going to Georgetown but didn’t account for the fact that I would meet a girl who lived in Tulsa – and I was going wherever she was. It turned out there was no lasting love connection between her and me, but there was between me and Tulsa. I love TU, still have great friends in Tulsa and always enjoy returning there,” said Carmody in the Lawdragon interview.
