Caryn Trombino Joins Perkins Coie's Investigations & White Collar Defense Practice
CHICAGO (August 2, 2010) – Perkins Coie announced today that Caryn Trombino is joining the firm's Investigations and White Collar Defense practice as a senior associate. She will be based in the firm's Chicago office.
Trombino has substantial experience with internal investigations and white collar defense. She has represented companies and individuals in numerous government investigations, including financial fraud, money laundering and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Trombino was formerly an associate with Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in Washington D.C. and prior to that she was an attorney at the U.S. Department of Commerce's Office of the General Counsel.
Trombino joins the firm only days after the firm announced that former Assistant U.S. Attorney Markus Funk was also joining Perkins Coie. Funk served in U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald's Public Corruption and Organized Crime Section and was part of the trial team in the landmark mob murder-racketeering conspiracy case dubbed "Operation Family Secrets."
"The firm's Investigations and White Collar Defense practice is growing rapidly," said Patrick Collins, member of the Firm’s Executive Committee, and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in Chicago. With the addition of Markus, and now Caryn, we feel we have put together a white collar team that is second-to-none. We look forward to having Caryn utilize her internal investigation and FCPA background to benefit our clients."
Trombino received her law degree from New York University School of Law where she was Senior Editor of the Journal of Legislation and Public Policy, and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Illinois where she was a Bronze Tablet recipient.
