AndrewDeVoreAndrew DeVore retired from DeVore & DeMarco LLP in 2010 to become Vice President, Legal and Regulatory in the legal department at Amazon.com, Inc.

Mr. DeVore focused intensively on effectively managing the risks associated with e-commerce in private practice, and formed DeVore & DeMarco LLP in order to build a boutique law firm concentrating specifically on new technology investigations, counseling, and litigation. At DeVore & DeMarco he assisted clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to start ups on a wide range of issues at the leading edge of law and new technology. Those issues included intellectual property counseling and litigation; information security and privacy; responding to hacking, digital piracy, theft of trade secrets, and other on-line malfeasance through proactive Internet investigations, litigation, and law-enforcement referrals; and the legal and policy issues surrounding behavioral targeting, social networking, and other “Web 2.0″ business initiatives.

Mr. DeVore previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where in 2001 he co-founded the Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property (“CHIPs”) Unit. In that capacity he conducted and oversaw the investigation and prosecution of sophisticated Internet and computer crimes such as computer hacking and sabotage, theft of trade secrets, copyright and trademark infringement, and various forms of on-line fraud.
