“I’m grateful to City & State for this great honor, and for being included alongside some of the most accomplished people in the legal profession,” said Mr. Schwartz. “Throughout my career, I have served as a trial lawyer, corporate advisor, and the CEO of both a private company and a unit of a public company. In every role I’ve held, it is my legal training that prepared me to manage complex situations. I am proud to be part of the New York legal community.”

Described by  The New York Times  as the person “often sought out in…thorny situations” by corporations, Mr. Schwartz has wide experience providing advice and support to companies, governments, and individuals. He served under U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani as the Chief of the Criminal Division in the Southern District of New York. In that post, Mr. Schwartz had oversight for prosecutions related to financial and business fraud, organized crime, narcotics, and other types of criminal activity.

On February 28, 2019, Mr. Schwartz was appointed by Secretary Ben Carson of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Geoffrey Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, as the federal Monitor overseeing the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), ensuring that it corrects the chronically poor housing conditions endured by residents.

For more than 30 years, Mr. Schwartz has managed complex investigations, prosecutions, and security assessments, and provided sophisticated investigative services to a wide array of entities. In addition to the NYCHA federal monitorship, he has had numerous appointments from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other local and federal entities to monitor the conduct of organizations ranging from General Motors to an international Norwegian shipping company.

Outside of work, Mr. Schwartz is dedicated to giving back to the local community. He is Chair of The All Stars Project, Inc. New York board and is a member of its national Board of Directors. The All Stars Project is a nonprofit organization that sponsors afterschool development programs to help inner-city youth and their families.
