Debevoise & Plimpton partner Matthew E. Fishbein has been inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL), becoming the latest Debevoise litigator to be selected for membership into this invitation-only organization. Mr. Fishbein joins Debevoise Senior Chair Mary Jo White, ACTL class of 1993, and partner Mark P. Goodman, ACTL class of 2015.
The American College of Trial Lawyers is composed of preeminent members of the Trial Bar from the United States and Canada and is recognized as the leading trial lawyers organization in both countries. Fellowship is only extended, after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality.
Mr. Fishbein is a litigation partner whose practice focuses on white collar criminal defense, internal investigations and complex commercial litigation. He has tried over 25 criminal and civil cases in federal and state court and argued numerous appeals in the Second Circuit and other appellate courts. He has also helped lead the defense of several major international corporations in multijurisdictional criminal investigations.
Consisting of career trial lawyers, former Assistant U.S. Attorneys, Assistant District Attorneys and British barristers, members of Debevoise’s Trial Practice Group have collectively tried hundreds of cases, both civil and criminal, in federal and state courts in the United States and the United Kingdon, as well as in international and domestic arbitrations before virtually every major arbitration institution. Underscoring just how broad the Debevoise litigators’ reach is, from mid-2011 to mid-2013 alone, the team litigated matters that touched on more than 90 countries.
