COLUMBUS, OH—Barnes & Thornburg today announced that David DeVillers, former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, has joined the firm’s Litigation Department as partner in the Columbus office.
DeVillers, whose practice will concentrate on white collar crime and investigations, has a stellar track record. As U.S. Attorney, he oversaw the investigation into and prosecutions related to one of the largest corruption conspiracies in Ohio’s history and prosecuted the largest federal murder case in Ohio, charging 20 members of the Short North Posse, a known gang in Columbus.
DeVillers is the sixth former U.S. Attorney to join the firm since 2015.
He stepped down from the Justice Department in late February. DeVillers has decades of experience providing counsel and defense at every stage of the criminal defense process.
