Attorney General Eric Holder and other high-profile past and present Justice Department officials made the cut in the National Law Journal’s list of the “100 Most Influential Lawyers.”

As the first African-American attorney general, Holder “has overseen some of the biggest cases in the nation’s history — including litigation over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and money laundering investigations of major banks,” according to NLJ.

Joining Holder on the list are Solicitor General Don Verrilli, Preet Bharaa, the current U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Lanny Breuer, the former Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, who left the department earlier this month.

Christine Varney, a former Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division, also made the list. Varney is a partner at the New York law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

The list also includes a bevy of influential trial attorneys, legal scholars, lobbyists, general counsel, firm managers and appellate advocates.
