Platkin will be a partner in the firm’s white-collar criminal defense and business litigation group when he joins the firm in October, when his tenure at his current post is up. The firm said that during his time in the Murphy administration, Platkin oversaw the drafting of over 80 executive and administrative orders related to the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
