Prosecutor Reisner To Paul Weiss

Jun 27 2014 | 9:07am ET

It didn’t take long for Preet Bharara’s outgoing top cop to find a soft landing in private practice.

Lorin Reisner, who led the criminal division of the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office for the past two years, will join prominent law firm Paul Weiss. Reisner will serve as a partner at the firm’s litigation department.

“We are delighted to welcome a lawyer of Lorin’s stature, talent and expertise to our firm,” Paul Weiss Chairman Brad Karp said.

Paul Weiss represented SAC Capital Advisors in an insider-trading case that Reisner helped to bring; the hedge fund pleaded guilty to the charges and agreed to become a family office. Prior to joining the prosecutor’s office, Reisner was deputy director of enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission, where he squared off against Paul Weiss as counsel to Citigroup.

“I look forward to working with this outstanding team of attorneys and using my experience to help the firm’s clients navigate the complex legal and regulatory challenges they face,” Reisner, who worked at law firm Debevoise & Plimpton before joining the SEC, said.
