Tony Mauro, over at The National Law Journal, has confirmed that former solicitor general Gregory Garre has joined Latham & Watkins’ D.C. office.

The former Rehnquist clerk had been a deputy SG since 2005. President George W. Bush nominated him for the top spot in June 2008, and he was confirmed in October, replacing Paul Clement. He served until the change in administrations.

Garre was head of Hogan & Hartson’s appellate practice before joining the Justice Department. According to Mauro, Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., also a Hogan alum, was a mentor of Garre’s at the firm.

Garre has been teaching at George Washington University Law School since he left the SG’s office.

At Latham,  Garre is reunited with his former DOJ colleague, Alice Fisher, who headed the Criminal Division for three years during the Bush administration.
