Help Trump FIGHT Impeachment [ACT NOW]
After nearly three years serving as special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and allegations of collusion, Robert Mueller announced he’s rejoining a prominent Washington, D.C. law firm.
Mueller’s new job responsibilities center around high-profile investigations and crisis management.
Per Fox News:
“We couldn’t be happier to have Bob, our extraordinary friend, and colleague, return to WilmerHale,” Robert Novick, the firm’s co-managing partner, said in a statement Tuesday. “Few lawyers have been entrusted with as many matters of national significance as Bob, in both his public service and in private practice. Bob embodies the highest values of our firm and profession. We’re privileged to work alongside him once again.”
Mueller said in a statement he was “glad” to be at WilmerHale again, calling it a firm with “a tradition of honoring public service.”
“It was an honor to serve as special counsel,” he said. “Now, I look forward to resuming my private practice alongside the talented lawyers at the firm.”
Mueller deputies James Quarles and Aaron Zebely, who both worked at the firm prior to joining the special counsel’s office, are also returning to WilmerHale.
Other members of Mueller’s team have landed prestigious jobs at universities and different law firms. One even signed a book deal with Random House.
