Jack W. Pirozzolo, who has been second-in-command for U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz in Massachusetts, has joined Sidley Austin LLP as a partner, the firm said today.

Pirozzolo was a principal litigator on hundreds of cases, including the investigation and prosecution of Boston Marathon bomber defendant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the prosecution of James J. “Whitey” Bulger.

He has been First Assistant U.S. Attorney since late 2009 and served in the District of Massachusetts for more than 10 years. He has also prosecuted serious healthcare fraud and securities fraud.

Pirozzolo was previously an assistant U.S. Attorney in the office’s Economic Crimes Unit where he focused on securities, tax and bank fraud. Before becoming a government prosecutor, he was a partner in private practice specializing in corporate litigation and insider trading.

“The experience Jack has gained at the U.S. Attorney’s office will allow him to immediately provide value and insight to our clients in a range of industries,” Mark Hopson, managing partner of Sidley’s Washington, D.C. office, said in a statement.

Pirozzolo has joined Sidley Austin’s White Collar: Government Litigation & Investigations practice.

He clerked for Chief Judge Sandra L. Lynch on the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Edward R. Becker on the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Pirozzolo graduated from the University of Chicago Law School and earned his undergraduate degree cum laude from Yale University.
