The Securities and Exchange Commission's top lawyer in the Fabrice Tourre case has chosen a new home.
Matthew Martens, who successfully led the civil case against the former Goldman Sachs executive, will join Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr as a partner in its securities and litigation practices. He had been considering a number of offers, including from law firms Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.

But he chose to try the Tourre case himself, winning a jury verdict that found Tourre liable for misleading investors in a Paulson & Co.-linked collateralized debt obligation.
