Chris Duffy, an accomplished trial lawyer with nearly two decades of experience in complex commercial litigation matters, has joined Vinson & Elkins as a partner, further enhancing the firm’s global trial and litigation team and expansion in New York.
“We are thrilled to have Chris as one of our partners. His impressive trial resumé and representation of investment banks matches perfectly with our existing trial and litigation practice,” said Michael Holmes, co-head of V&E’s complex commercial litigation practice. “Our team has tried numerous high-profile, high-stakes cases, and having someone with Chris’ trial experience in New York will add a new dimension to our team.”
Duffy joins V&E from Boies Schiller Flexner LLP. He focuses on securities and shareholder litigation, corporate governance, director and officer representation, commercial disputes and mergers and acquisitions, as well as external investigations by FINRA, the SEC, the New York Attorney General and other government agencies.
“V&E is a powerhouse firm with boundless opportunities to grow my financial services practice, and to do high-stakes trial work across a variety of industries,” said Duffy. “I am excited to join such a dynamic team and look forward to playing a role in its continued growth.”
