A former deputy attorney general under former President George H.W. Bush will be joining law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. George Terwilliger, a prominent white-collar defense lawyer, will leave White & Case with three other partners to join Morgan Lewis. Terwilliger and the other three White & Case partners—Daniel Levin, Matthew Miner and Robert J. Bittman, all white collar investigators and litigation practitioners with significant prior government experience—will officially join the firm on Thursday.
"George is a nationally-known white collar litigator with deep government ties, whose reputation for helping companies handle complex investigations, civil and criminal suits is unrivaled," Jami W. McKeon, leader of the firm's litigation practice, said in a statement. "The stellar experience that he, Dan, Matt, and Bob bring to the firm, paired with our existing prominent white collar practice, offers our clients everything they need to navigate the full breadth of issues that often arise from corporate crises, government investigations, and an ever more aggressive enforcement environment."
