US Attorney Mary Jo White has left her position as the head of New York's prosecution department to return to Debevoise & Plimpton
White, who was a partner at Debevoise from 1983-1990, has been responsible for prosecuting some of the city's most notorious cases. She joins the firm as chair of its 32-partner litigation department. During her nine-year tenure as US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, White oversaw the prosecution of cases concerning organised crime, international terrorism and money laundering. One of her most highly-publicised cases was the prosecution of Ramzi Yousef, convicted of the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing. At Debevoise, White will transfer her attentions to defence work, focusing on internal investigations and defending companies and individuals accused of white collar or corporate crime.
