Davis Polk Partner to Become GC for Manhattan DA

“Carey Dunne, a partner at Davis Polk & Wardwell who was president of the New York City Bar Association, will become general counsel of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office in January, the Law Journal has learned. He will replace Benjamin Rosenberg, who is planning to leave the office to return to Dechert as a partner. Dunne first worked for the Manhattan DA as a law student intern in 1981 and, after graduating law school, returned as an assistant district attorney. He later joined Davis Polk, where he has practiced for nearly 30 years, representing companies and executives in investigations and commercial disputes. In 2007, he was appointed by then Chief Judge Judith Kaye as chair of her commission on the future of the New York state courts. He currently serves on Chief Judge Janet DiFiore’s judicial task force on the New York state constitution. Dunne was president of the city bar from 2012-2014, and in 2015 was nominated by the New York State Commission on Judicial Nominations to be the chief judge of the State of New York.”
