15 June 2021

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partner and chair of the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Defense group Bruce Yannett has been named to the “Top FCPA Practitioners” list published by Global Investigations Review (GIR). Described as “a star” by his peers, Mr. Yannett has experience on highly complex FCPA cases, having represented a number of leading multinational corporations and financial services institutions on a full range of foreign corruption matters.

Mr. Yannett is also noted by GIR for the deep bench of partners seasoned in FCPA matters that he can bring to a client engagement. As stated in his profile, “the New York-based Yannett also stands out for the colleagues he can turn to, including Kara Brockmeyer, a former head of the SEC’s FCPA unit; David O’Neil, who guided Keppel Offshore through its FCPA settlement; and Andrew Levine, who has a particular expertise in Latin America.”

GIR’s “Top FCPA Practitioners” list highlights 30 of the most outstanding lawyers and forensic advisers in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act space, as well as five individuals whose practices have started making waves in the industry more recently. The list is based on extensive market research and interviews with 130 industry insiders, including practice heads, in-house lawyers and former government officials to find out who they think are the best they’ve worked with in the U.S. on foreign bribery matters.

Mr. Yannett is a member of Debevoise’s award-winning White Collar & Regulatory Defense Group which is ranked as one of the world’s top practices by Global Investigations Review and as Band 1 by Chambers on both sides of the Atlantic for its complex representations of clients facing litigation and public policy crises. The Group has been involved in some of the most significant investigations and resolutions over the past few years, and offers international and domestic clients a depth of experience and global reach that allows for effective and strategic counsel, from defending against criminal prosecutions and civil enforcement actions, to conducting internal investigations, negotiating complex global settlements and facilitating cooperation with government regulators.
