Please join YLW and APALSA for a lunch talk with Jeannie Rhee ’97. Ms. Rhee will discuss her career path spanning both the private and public sectors, including many years of government service.
A current partner at Paul Weiss, Ms. Rhee’s career includes senior national roles in public service as well as nearly a decade in private practice.
In May 2017, Ms. Rhee was asked by Robert Mueller to join the Special Counsel’s Office, where she led the team investigating Russian cyber, social media and intelligence efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Ms. Rhee's team was responsible for many of the office’s significant accomplishments: the two Russia-related indictments, the prosecution of Trump associate Roger Stone, and the guilty pleas of attorney Michael Cohen and campaign advisor George Papadopoulos. Ms. Rhee also helped secure the guilty plea of former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Between 2009 and 2011, Ms. Rhee served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel. There, she advised the Attorney General, the White House and senior agency officials on constitutional, statutory and regulatory issues regarding criminal law, criminal procedure, executive privilege, civil rights and national security.
From 2000 to 2006, Ms. Rhee served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia. In that capacity, she handled more than 30 jury and bench trials involving public corruption, healthcare fraud, national security violations and other issues, and served as lead counsel in a congressional corruption investigation.
Over nearly a decade in private practice, Ms. Rhee represented a wide variety of companies and individuals, including at trial, favorably resolving criminal and civil fraud matters involving issues such as government-guaranteed loans, national security and cybersecurity breaches, tax shelter transactions, stock options backdating, public corruption, off-label drug promotion and environmental contamination.
