Former U.S. Attorney Returns to Gibson Dunn



Earlier in the month, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP announced that U.S. Attorney Charles J. Stevens (Chuck) will return to resume private law practice in the San Francisco office. Stevens had been a former Partner at Gibson Dunn, and is the Founding Partner of Stevens, O'Connell & Jacobs LLP, a litigation boutique focusing on government investigations.

Stevens began his career in law practice as an associate at the Los Angeles office of Gibson Dunn. This is the second time that he has returned to the law firm. Previously, he left the law firm to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Public Corruption and Government Contract Fraud Unit in the Central district of California in Los Angeles. The year 1990 marked his first return to Gibson Dunn as a Partner.

Three years later, Stevens was appointed as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of California by President Clinton. At that time, with an age of 35 years, he was one of the youngest US Attorneys in the nation.

After long service with the Department of Justice (DOJ), Stevens and another former U.S. Attorney founded the boutique law firm Stevens, O'Connell & Jacobs. This law firm focuses on government and internal investigations. Last year, Stevens focused primarily on working as a mediator with JAMS, government claims and teaching a course on mediation at the U.C. Davis Law School.

Speaking on Stevens' return to Gibson Dunn, Ken Doran, Chairman and Managing Partner of the law firm expressed his delight and said, "He is an outstanding lawyer with a stellar reputation both in Northern California and the nation. Expanding the firm's white-collar practice is a priority for the firm, and the addition of a partner with Chuck's strong background and stature both in private practice and as a U.S. Attorney is a tremendous step toward expanding our white-collar and litigation capability."

Mary Murphy, Partner in Charge of the firm's San Francisco office said, "He knows the firm, and we know him. He is highly regarded by the white collar bar, and he has tried more than 30 cases to verdict. With his experience, reputation and leadership, Chuck will be a great asset to our white collar and civil litigation practices in the San Francisco office and firmwide."

Stevens will practice in the areas of government and internal investigations, compliance reviews, and white collar defense with focus on False Claims Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, health care fraud, antitrust and procurement fraud. He will also be working on related matters such as civil litigation alleging fraud, unfair competition and unjust business practices.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
