ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general has appointed two longtime lawyers as chief deputies responsible for criminal prosecutions and civil litigation.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says Jason Brown previously headed the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn. He has been a partner at Ropes & Gray, a global law firm headquartered in Boston.

He will head the attorney general’s criminal prosecutions starting in January.

Janet Sabel has been promoted from her former position as first deputy attorney general of affirmative litigation. She joined Schneiderman’s office in 2011.

She is the former general counsel and chief administrative officer of the Legal Aid Society.
