Former Nevada U.S. Attorney Gregory A. Brower next week will become a partner at the Las Vegas-based Snell & Wilmer L.L.P., the law firm announced today. Brower resigned Thursday as Daniel Bogden was sworn in as the district’s new U.S. Attorney. Bogden, who was confirmed Sept. 15, was fired in 2006 as part of the Bush administration’s U.S. Attorney purge.
Brower had served as the district’s head prosecutor since December 2007. As a partner in the firm, Brower will focus on complex civil litigation, criminal investigations, regulatory enforcement actions, corporate compliance matters, internal investigations and administrative law issues, according to the firm.
Brower has been mentioned as a possible Republican opponent for Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in 2010 or as a Nevada attorney general candidate.
