As previously discussed here, three white collar/securities litigators have joined Skadden Arps as partners in its New York office. John Carroll, David Meister and Warren Feldman — all previously partners at Clifford Chance — are joining Skadden’s White Collar Crime Group.
Carroll was previously head of Clifford Chance’s Global White Collar Practice Group and served as the firm’s Managing Partner for the Americas from 2002 to 2004. He previously worked for nine years at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the SDNY, where he was Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Unit. Meister also served as an AUSA for the Southern District of New York from 1991 to 1994, where he was a member of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Unit.
