NEW YORK, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The international law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP today announced that Pamela J. Marple and Christopher D. Man have rejoined the firm, as partner and counsel, respectively. Ms. Marple will split her time between the New York and Washington, DC offices and Mr. Man will be resident in Washington, DC.
Ms. Marple, a former trial attorney with the Department of Justice with a breadth of experience in civil and government litigation, will join as a partner, focusing her practice on financial litigation and government enforcement actions and investigations. She was formerly a partner at McDermott Will & Emery in Washington, DC.
Mr. Man, also a former partner at McDermott, focuses his practice on all aspects of white collar trial and appellate work and brings a variety of litigation and investigation experience to the firm.
"Chadbourne is pleased to welcome Pamela and Chris back to the firm," said Chadbourne Managing Partner Andrew A. Giaccia. "The addition of these two talented attorneys, along with the recent return of Abbe Lowell, greatly enhances our capabilities with respect to the increasingly important area of special investigations and government enforcement, as well as our overall litigation offerings."
Ms. Marple, previously counsel at Chadbourne from 2003-2007, represents clients in all aspects of commercial civil litigation and government investigations, including concurrent civil litigation, governmental enforcement actions, and investigations by, among others, the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. She has experience in parallel proceedings in antitrust, foreign corrupt practices, securities and financial services, campaign finance, tax and general corporate fraud. Ms. Marple's roster of high-profile clients includes major insurance companies and their executives, international electronics and technology corporations, telecommunications companies and trading executives.
Mr. Man, who was an associate at Chadbourne from 2003-2007, defends clients accused of violating securities laws, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Mr. Man also advises companies on compliance with FCPA, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and trades sanctions.
Ms. Marple spent five years as a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice and three years as a managing counsel with the U.S. Senate, where she served as counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, deputy chief counsel and chief counsel to the Minority on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. She is also a former co-chair and elected member of the Steering Committee of the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section of the D.C. Bar. Ms. Marple earned her B.A., cum laude, from the University of Virginia in 1986 and her J.D., cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin in 1991.
A frequent author, Mr. Man has written numerous articles for legal publication, including The National Law Journal, New York Law Journal, Legal Times, www.law.com, Business Crimes Bulletin and several prominent law reviews. He received his B.A. from the University of Kansas in 1992, and his J.D. from Washington University School of Law in 1995. Mr. Man earned his LL.M. from George Washington University Law School in 1997.
"Pamela and Chris's extensive experience advising clients in complex litigation and government investigations make them a valuable asset for Chadbourne's clients," said Abbe Lowell, head of Chadbourne's White Collar Defense and Special Litigation and Investigations Group. "Whether dealing with FCPA compliance issues, litigating a fraud case or facing a government investigation, clients stand to benefit from their knowledge, courtroom skills and client service."
