Former associate White House counsel Dimitri Nionakis has left Alston & Bird for DLA Piper. This is not the first time DLA has scored a big lateral from the Atlanta-based firm. Last fall, Frank “Rusty” Conner III, the partner-in-charge of Alston’s D.C. office, left for DLA with four other partners. And the same desire for a larger platform that lured those partners to the more than 3,600-lawyer firm also enticed Nionakis. “DLA Piper has the global footprint and depth of resources to service clients anywhere and provides the platform to grow and expand my practice,” says Nionakis. “I look forward to enhancing DLA’s leading litigation practice in my areas of expertise.” Nionakis, who joined DLA as a partner, assists clients in internal and government investigations, securities litigation, and complex civil matters. Currently, he’s representing executives from Dell Inc. in Securities and Exchange Commission investigations and a recently concluded audit committee investigation. From 1997 to 2001, he was associate counsel to President Bill Clinton, and he served as an attorney in the impeachment proceedings as well as advising the president on congressional and Department of Justice investigations, litigation, privilege matters, and ethics issues. Prior to his stint in the White House, Nionakis was a partner at Howrey in D.C.
