Morgan Lewis Adds Pair of Women Litigators as Lateral Partners

Sept. 2, 2020, 8:55 PM

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius added to its burgeoning roster of lateral partners by bringing aboard two women litigators in Washington with finance and government experience.

Sandra Moser rejoins after a stint at Quinn Emanuel, and, earlier, as chief of the Justice Department’s Fraud Section. Robin Nunn, a former in-house counsel, arrives after working for Dechert, where she was chair of the consumer financial services group.

They arrive after 18 partners have joined Morgan Lewis’ Washington office in the past two years. Its now 71-partner litigation bench includes lawyers like former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Matthew Miner.

Jami McKeon, chair of the firm with more than 2,200 lawyers, said Moser and Nunn “each bring an esteemed voice and a seasoned skillset.”

Moser said Morgan Lewis offers a variety of investigations work, cross-border matters, and representing clients before enforcement and regulatory agencies, and Congress.

Nunn, who was a vice president and senior associate general counsel at Capital One from 2015-17 and a counsel at American Express before that, said she plans to leverage her consumer financial experience.

“I want to help organize and further the consumer financial services areas, which can include complex class actions or working with federal and state agencies in litigation, enforcement and investigations,” she said. “There are some major issues such as privacy and data security, Covid-19, debt collection and fair credit reporting, among others, that are involved.”

Nunn also said she will be working on the Morgan Lewis task force on diversity and inclusion. She’s been active on that front at the American Bar Association.

Moser worked at the Justice Department for more than a dozen years, taking over as head of the fraud division in 2017. She led a team of 150 white collar prosecutors, and played a lead role in prosecuting financial institutions for manipulating the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and foreign exchange markets.

After leaving government, she joined Quinn Emanuel in February 2019 and became co-chair of its investigations, government investigations and white collar criminal defense practice in Washington.
