The group at Dechert LLP, which is chaired by Chicago-based David Kistenbroker and New York-based David Kelley, specializes in securities matters, as well as corporate governance and FCPA issues, congressional and internal investigations, US export controls and economic sanctions. Andrew Levander and Benjamin Rosenberg in New York are defending the director of a Hong Kong-based NGO, Dr Chi Ping Patrick Ho, in a criminal prosecution for alleged violations of the FCPA and money laundering charges relating to the bribery of Chadian and Senegalese government officials for the benefit of a Chinese energy company. Alongside Neil Steiner, Levander and a number of associated entities in multiple government agency investigations concerning the purchase of two not-for-profit nursing homes, which were promptly closed and sold to a luxury real estate developer, allegedly removing a deed restriction on the property; ultimately the client was cleared of any wrongdoing. Cathy Botticelli, Vincent Cohen are the names to note in Washington DC, and New York-based Jonathan Streeter is also recommended. In Philadelphia, the bench was greatly strengthened by the arrival of Michael McGinley, who joined the firm in April 2018 after serving as special assistant and associate counsel to President Trump.
