Lanny Davis Leaves McDermott Will for Own Firm
High-profile Washington lawyer Lanny J. Davis, a former special counsel to President Bill Clinton, is leaving McDermott Will & Emery after just seven months to form his own firm.
Davis, who is also a well-known political pundit and columnist, said in a statement to the Washington Post that he is forming Lanny J. Davis & Associates, which will specialize in general litigation issues, media crisis and public policy issues.
“I am excited by this opportunity to offer multidiscipline, solution-oriented legal-media-legislative strategies services to U.S. and international clients,” Mr. Davis said in a statement. “I especially look forward to working with not only McDermott attorneys and clients, but also with other attorneys and law firms on high-profile litigation and regulatory matters.”
It was back in October that Davis made news by leaving Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe to join McDermott Will & Emery. According to multiple reports, Davis will continue to work with McDermott but will also forge relationships with other firms in his new role.Lanny Davis Leaves McDermott Will for Own Firm by joshua
