Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Commercial Litigation Practice with the addition of Matthew Devine as a partner in Chicago.
"Matt has an impressive track record managing high-stakes business disputes, strong client relationships and a terrific market reputation," said Glenn Kurtz, Head of White & Case’s Global Commercial Litigation Practice. "His arrival will add depth to our commercial litigation footprint in Chicago, and enhance our renowned expertise in advising on complex, high-profile disputes."
Devine is a first-chair trial lawyer specializing in heavily litigated aspects of business law, with a particular focus on sensitive matters for corporate clients involving media attention and reputational risk. His practice focuses on class action defense, trade secrets and high-stakes “mass raid” cases, as well as contracts and partnership disputes. Devine has a strong track record of achieving victories in state and federal courts across the country, including recently winning dismissal with prejudice in numerous putative class action lawsuits in closely watched cases. He joins White & Case from Jenner & Block, where he was a partner.
"Matt’s arrival aligns with our strategic goal to further expand our top-flight Commercial Litigation Practice in the US," said Jason Zakia, White & Case's Regional Section Head of Americas Commercial Litigation. "His strong experience and skill set will deepen the bench of on-the-ground expertise in our growing Chicago office."
Devine's arrival follows the recent expansion of the Firm's Global Commercial Litigation Practice with the additions of Tara Lee as a partner in Washington, DC and Kate Perumal as a partner in Sydney.
