The Recorder Recognizes Two Mintz Members as 2020 California Trailblazers

Mintz is pleased to share that Members Daniel Pascucci and Joseph Dunn have been named to The Recorder’s 2020 list of California Trailblazers, which recognizes professionals in California who have made a significant impact on the legal industry through innovative advancements and have become true “agents of change.” Mr. Pascucci and Mr. Dunn were profiled in a special supplement published on October 5.

The Trailblazer recognition is a testament to Mr. Pascucci and Mr. Dunn’s successful practice of enforcing judgments and recovering assets for a wide-ranging set of international and domestic clients, including manufacturers, investment funds, trustees and other fiduciaries, and large financial institutions. Over the past 15 years, they have leveraged their expertise to carry out successful investigations of complex fraudulent schemes and prosecute strategic litigation to recover hundreds of millions of dollars for their creditor clients.

As Co-chairs of Mintz’s Cross-Border Asset Recovery Practice, Mr. Pascucci and Mr. Dunn have built a team of inter-disciplinary experts that address complex money-laundering and asset-sheltering schemes to reveal assets hidden around the globe.

Managing Member of Mintz’s San Diego office, Mr. Pascucci has developed unique expertise in global asset recovery and is a recognized authority on helping clients recover debts and investment losses fraudulently laundered off-shore and hidden in renowned privacy and tax shelter nations.

Mr. Dunn has a broad-ranging litigation and insolvency practice drawing from his significant experience with complex creditor rights litigation, bankruptcy and corporate reorganization, with a focus on asset recovery, judgment enforcement and litigation in the insolvency arena.

In their Trailblazers profile, The Recorder highlighted Mr. Pascucci and Mr. Dunn’s recent success, their careers that led them to “join forces,” and the growing need for asset recovery expertise in a global economy, despite the pandemic: “[Our clients] don’t stop because they’re told to shelter in place,” noted Mr. Pascucci.
