Fine, DOJ's Inspector General from 2000 to 2011, will join the firm's white collar and securities litigation group. He will focus on government and internal investigations, corporate compliance issues and white collar and securities.
“I’m excited about moving into private practice and I want to use some of the skills I’ve developed in the Department of Justice in the private sector,” Fine said. “I like the people here. It’s a growing firm with a diverse practice, a terrific client base and a significant international presence.”
During his tenure with DOJ, Fine oversaw a review of the agency’s handling of intelligence related to the Sept. 11 attacks; the politicized hiring and firing of U.S. Attorneys; and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s use of national security letters.
