The American Lawyer has profiled the remarkable success and growth trajectory of the SEC enforcement practice of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP in an article titled, “With a Remarkable Roster of SEC Talent, Debevoise Is Poised to Draw More Cutting-Edge Securities Work”. Featuring quotes from several partners including Andrew Ceresney, Jonathan Tuttle, Kara Brockmeyer, Robert Kaplan and Julie Riewe, as well as client Dan Gallagher, Chief Legal Officer of Robinhood, the article discusses how Debevoise built a preeminent enforcement practice through a strategy of hiring the very best former SEC lawyers and other experienced SEC practitioners, sustaining a collaborative culture focused on integration and teamwork, and building deep expertise within key business sectors, from asset management to cutting-edge fields such as cryptocurrency.

The firm’s deep experience gives clients a significant advantage in the face of regulatory scrutiny across a broad range of securities-related enforcement, examination, and compliance issues.
