Eric Dinallo, former superintendent of the New York Insurance Department, is joining the law firm Debevoise & Plimpton as a partner.
Dinallo, who lost the state democratic primary nomination for attorney general earlier this year, will represent clients throughout the financial services sector and provide counseling on a broad range of matters, including government and internal investigations, enforcement actions, litigation and compliance matters, and regulatory and strategic legal advice on mergers and acquisitions and other corporate transactions.
Before serving as superintendent of the New York Insurance Department from 2007 to 2009, Dinallo was general counsel for insurance broker Willis Group Holdings and as a managing director and head of regulatory affairs for Morgan Stanley. Before then, he served as chief of the investment protection bureau under former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer.
