Gibson Dunn Brings on Third-Ranking DOJ Official
Summary: A top ranking official for the Department of Justice will be joining the highly ranked team at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
The former Acting Associate Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice will join Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP as a partner. Stuart Delery was in the No. 3 position in the Justice Department, giving him experience that will be extremely valuable for the law firm.
Delery was involved in overseeing the litigation of False Claims Act, Recovery and Enforcement Act, Food Drug and Cosmetic Act and Financial Institutions Reform as he led the Civil Division. His private practice focus will now be on advising corporations and individuals through high-stake litigation and investigations involving the federal government.
Chairman and Managing Partner Ken Doran said, “We are very pleased to welcome Stuart to the firm. Clients routinely seek law firms with significant expertise and experience with relevant government agencies. Stuart brings years of experience with the Department of Justice in senior roles, built on prior success in the private sector. He will add enormous value to our clients.”
Co-Partner in Charge of the Washington D.C. office Daniel Nelson said, “Stuart will bring additional capacity to what is already one of the top white collar and regulatory litigation practices globally. Gibson Dunn has been recognized as a leading White Collar practice by four respected organizations in the past year, an honor that sets the firm apart.” He added, “The American Lawyer named Gibson Dunn the first-ever winner in the White Collar Regulatory category of its biennial Litigation Department of the Year competition in January, and in May at its annual awards, Chambers and Partners named the firm as the winner in the Corporate Crime & Government Investigations category. In addition, Global Investigations Review ranked Gibson Dunn No. 1 in the GIR 30, its annual guide to the world’s best firms for international investigations, in September 2015. Also, in D.C. last year, the National Law Journal named Gibson Dunn as the winner of the White Collar category in its latest Washington Litigation Departments of the Year competition.”
Gibson Dunn has over 50 former DOJ and Assistant U.S. attorneys.
