Davis Polk hires former US Attorney
Davis Polk has scored with the hire of former US Attorney Neil H. MacBride. MacBride will jump to the other side of the aisle to join the firm’s white-collar criminal defense group early next year.
MacBride has overseen many high-profile cases in his time as Attorney, including bringing criminal charges against Edward Snowden, and prosecuting Somali pirates.
Davis Polk’ managing partner Thomas J. Reid said that the firm hired MacBride in response to strong client demand for white collar criminal defense work. “The biggest headache I have right now is staffing the burgeoning caseload we have in New York, D.C. and Asia” he said.
