There’s lawyering up and then there’s this: Cybercurrency company Ripple Labs has brought on a high-profile team from Debevoise & Plimpton—former Securities and Exchange Commission chair Mary Jo White and her enforcement chief Andrew Ceresney—to defend against a securities fraud lawsuit.

The Debevoise attorneys and lawyers from two California offices of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom appear on court papers for Ripple on June 1, removing the suit from California state court to federal court in the Northern District of California.
