Dechert LLP’s New York team was joined in January 2017 by David Kelley from Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, who became practice co-chair alongside the Chicago-based David Kistenbroker. Other new arrivals include New York-based Benjamin Rosenberg, who joined from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, and Christina Guerola Sarchio in Washington DC, who joined from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP. The firm has particular expertise in securities-related matters; Andrew Levander represented the former senator, Jon Corzine, in investigations and litigation arising from MF Global’s bankruptcy, leading to a negotiated settlement with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Jonathan Streeter is representing James Icahn in pending investigations by the Southern District of New York Attorney’s Office and the SEC into insider trading allegations. In another key mandate, the group is serving as Toyota’s independent monitor as part of a deferred prosecution pertaining to compliance and safety. The ‘sharp and practical’ Catherine Botticelli in Washington DC is also recommended.
