Adam Lurie, a top Criminal Division attorney, is leaving the Justice Department to return to Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP in its business fraud and complex litigation group, the firm announced Monday.
Lurie served as Senior Counsel to Lanny Breuer, the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division. He had previously worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in New Jersey and as staff director and counsel for investigations and oversight for the U.S. House of Representatives’ Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, according to a Cadwalader news release.
Lurie is a graduate of Mary Washington College and Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
Monday’s news comes a week after the law firm announced that Ken Wainstein, a former Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division, is also joining Cadwalader from O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
