New York – Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP announced today that Guy D. Singer has joined the firm as a partner in its White Collar and Corporate Investigations Practice Group, resident in New York. Mr. Singer joins Orrick from Fulbright & Jaworski LLP, where he was head of the Government Investigations and White Collar Group for the New York office.
