King & Spalding, Cleary Gottlieb announce career moves

One firm gains a former DOJ official, another says goodbye to a white-collar defense partner

Two Big Law firms recently announced two significant career moves.

On Monday, King & Spalding announced that former high-ranking Department of Justice (DOJ) official Gary Grindler, who left the DOJ in December 2012, will join the firm as a partner in the Washington, D.C., office. Grindler was acting deputy U.S. attorney general and chief of staff to Attorney General Eric Holder during his four years at the DOJ, where he was heavily involved in Operation Fast and Furious, the government’s failed U.S.-Mexico gun-trafficking probe.
