Today, Jenner & Block announced that experienced litigator Peter B. Pope has joined the Firm as a partner in its New York office.

Mr. Pope served as Deputy Attorney General of New York State, heading that Office’s 100-lawyer Criminal Division from 2000 through 2006. He also served as the state’s Director of Policy for two Governors. Mr. Pope began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan, where he rose to Deputy Chief of the Labor Racketeering Unit.

While serving as Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Pope was involved in a broad range of significant New York State enforcement actions of national significance that included the insurance, mutual fund, securities analyst, and hedge fund industries.

Following his service as Deputy Attorney General, from 2007-2008 Mr. Pope was the Director of Policy for New York Governors Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson. In that capacity, he advised the Governors on a wide variety of matters and helped negotiate landmark laws with the New York State legislature, including the widely heralded overhaul of the Workers’ Compensation system, and one of the nation’s strongest Anti-Human Trafficking statutes. Mr. Pope left government service in 2008 to join Arkin Kaplan Rice LLP, one of Manhattan’s leading white collar defense boutique firms.  He left the firm as a partner.

Jenner & Block’s White Collar Defense and Investigations practice includes 10 former federal prosecutors, including firm Chairman Anton R. Valukas, a former U.S. Attorney in Chicago who recently served as the court-appointed Examiner in the Lehman Brothers Bankruptcy, and Andrew Weissmann, a former Director of the Justice Department’s Enron Task Force and Chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.

In the press release at the firm’s site, Susan C. Levy, Managing Partner of Jenner & Block was quoted as saying: “We are thrilled that Peter is joining Jenner & Block. His first-rate courtroom and investigations experience will augment our stellar White Collar practice. We are extraordinarily strong in federal law enforcement experience, and Peter will now augment our strengths with his top-to-bottom experience in investigations by the New York State Attorney General and the New York County District Attorney, which are increasingly important to our clients.”
