Debevoise Partner David A. O’Neil Named a “Litigation Trailblazer” by The National Law Journal

8 August 2018

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partner David A. O’Neil has been recognized as a 2018 “Litigation Trailblazer” by The National Law Journal. Trailblazers are selected annually for their exceptional work advancing practice and policy in their sector.

Mr. O’Neil’s accompanying profile in The National Law Journal highlights his extensive experience tackling complex litigation matters. Specifically, the profile hones in on Mr. O’Neil’s successful defense of FanDuel against attorney general actions seeking to prohibit the fantasy sports contests it sponsors as illegal gambling. “The situation required a broader strategy to find the right outcome,” he explains. “It was an emerging area where the rules were not established and there was no clear playbook. That’s where I like to practice.”

Mr. O’Neil is a litigation partner and member of the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Defense Group. His practice focuses on white collar criminal defense, internal investigations, privacy and cybersecurity, congressional investigations and AML/sanctions enforcement defense. Mr. O’Neil is also recognized by Chambers USA (2018) as a leading lawyer in White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations.
