Grindler Returns to King & Spalding

Former acting Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler has returned to King & Spalding LLP, the firm announced today.

Grindler left King & Spalding in 2009 for a variety of positions at Main Justice, ending up his Attorney General Eric Holder’s chief of staff.

The department announced his departure in December.

Upon the¬†resignation¬†of then-DAG David Ogden in 2010, Grindler took over as the acting No. 2 official, managing the department’s day-to-day business. He held that position until a new DAG, Jim Cole, was installed via a recess appointment in December 2010. Cole was later confirmed by the Senate.

“Gary Grindler is a top litigator and has a deep understanding of the prosecution of white-collar crime. We are excited to welcome him back to the firm,” Wick Sollers, managing partner of King & Spalding’s Washington office, said in the news release.

At King & Spalding, Grindler will focus on financial fraud, health care, the False Claims Act and international and congressional investigations — the latter of which he knows something about, having been targeted by congressional Republicans during the probe of the botched Fast and Furious gun tracing operation.
