Former deputy attorney general joins Morgan Lewis

George Terwilliger leaves White & Case for different firm

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."

Terwilliger served in the No. 2 position at the Department of Justice during the first President Bush’s term. Focusing on white-collar defense and civil litigation, Terwilliger has handled several notable cases. He represented Alberto Gonzales during congressional investigations into the 2006 scandal over the dismissal of federal prosecutors and he represented the former CEO of VECO Corp., an Alaska oilfield services company, in a corruption case.
