The former US solicitor general left the office in June of this year and will be launching the first base for the 200 lawyer firm outside of California.


Prior to serving as US soliticor general, Mr. Verrilli served as deputy White House counsel and as an associate deputy attorney general at the US Department of Justice.

 

Michael DeSanctis, who is a renowned litigator and former managing partner of Jenner & Block’s D.C. office, will join him as partner, and former Deputy Associate Attorney General Chad Golder, will join as counsel. The firm is looking to strengthen their Supreme Court practice and help clients with multidimensional problems where litigation, regulation and public policy intersect.

 

According to Brad D. Brian, Munger’s co-managing partner the move “does not signal some trend by Munger Tolles & Olson to open more offices,” rather there simply was an “opportunity to hire a really talented lawyer who brought along two other really talented lawyers, and happened to be in Washington, D.C.”
