Sidley Austin LLP has announced that David B. Barlow, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah, will rejoin Sidley as a partner this summer. Mr. Barlow will reside in Sidley’s Washington, D.C. office and will focus his practice on the service of the firm’s life sciences clients.
Mr. Barlow originally joined Sidley in 2000 and became a partner in 2006. During his time at Sidley, he handled a wide variety of cases, with particular emphasis on pharmaceutical, medical device, and mass tort matters.

“We are delighted to welcome David back to Sidley,” said Mark Hopson, managing partner of Sidley’s Washington, D.C. office and a member of the firm’s Management Committee. “The insight and experiences David has gained during his time in the Department of Justice will be immensely valuable to our clients.”
Michael W. Davis, partner, secretary of Sidley’s Executive Committee and a co-global coordinator of Sidley’s Life Sciences Practice, said “Life sciences are at the core of David’s legal experience and expertise. David is highly-regarded and we could not be more pleased that he is returning to the firm,” Mr. Davis added.
In his role as U.S. Attorney, Mr. Barlow led an office of approximately 50 assistant and special assistant U.S. Attorneys who represented the United States in criminal prosecutions and civil litigation. During his tenure, the office conducted thousands of investigations and prosecutions together with the FBI, IRS, Secret Service, DEA, ATF and many other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.
