Meet Barry Berke, the chair of the litigation department at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, who is based in New York. Berke returned to the firm last year after serving as chief impeachment counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives in the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. He had previously served as special counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the first Trump impeachment, a role where he gave the opening statement for the committee and questioned key witnesses. We named Berke runner-up for Litigator of the Week earlier this month alongside partner Dani James after they won a ruling knocking out bribery charges facing former New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin.
