Former Office of Legal Counsel head and “torture” memo author Steven Bradbury became the latest Bush DOJ official to become a partner at the D.C. office of Dechert. Read the law firm’s news release from last week here.
The ex-OLC chief will join former Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel Deputy Assistant Attorney General Steven Engel and former DOJ Antitrust Division Chief of Staff Hill Wellford at the firm. Read our previous post on Engel and Wellford here.
Bradbury — who is under investigation by Office of Professional Responsibility for his role in authorizing brutal interrogation tactics — will focus on securities and antitrust litigation at Dechert.
“Steve is an extraordinarily talented litigator who in his 20-year career has been involved in some of the most significant litigation in his field,” said Dechert chairman Barton J. Winokur, in a statement. “He is a valuable addition to our antitrust and trial practices and we are pleased that he has chosen to join us.”
