Manatt, Phelps & Phillips LLP announced that leading financial services litigator Andrew Zimmitti has joined the Washington D.C. office of the firm to re-team with his former Patton Boggs colleague Carol Van Cleef. Van Cleef had joined Manatt earlier this month. Both Zimmitti and Van Cleef had been partners in Patton Boggs’ banking and financial, commercial litigation and government investigations practice groups.

Zimmitti has wide experience in advising and defending financial institutions, money services business and others in a variety of civil and white collar matters including regulatory enforcement actions in Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering compliance and consumer protection and unfair, deceptive and abusive practices.


He represents clients in Securities and Exchange Commission investigations and litigation in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, broker-dealer regulations, bankruptcy proceedings and the Investment Advisors Act. Zimmitti also advises clients on data policies and protocols for collecting, reviewing and storing electronic information in civil litigation.

Prior to joining Patton Boggs, Zimmitti served as a judge advocate in the U.S. Navy and represented senior military personnel in administrative matters within the Department of Defense and also advised active and former military personnel on civil matters.

Speaking on joining Manatt, Zimmitti said, “I was particularly impressed by the firm’s sophisticated regulatory, financial services and banking practices, which, combined with a nationally recognized litigation bench and premier digital media and advertising practices, provide an ideal platform to service my clients and continue to expand my practice. Also, the opportunity to join my former colleague Carol Van Cleef, who is doing extraordinary work in the global payments and anti-money laundering space, was one I could not pass up. I look forward to working with this dynamic and accomplished group.”

Zimmitti did his B.A. from the University of Chicago and his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
