Bryan Cave partner John Danforth is set to take on one of the world’s toughest jobs as the US ambassador to the UN, shortly after presiding over Ronald Reagan’s funeral.
Danforth is a former US senator and an ordained Episcopal minister, as well as an aviation lawyer in Bryan Cave’s international client service group.
Danforth conducted the national funeral service of former US president Ronald Reagan on Friday in front of President George Bush, four former presidents, Russian president Vladimir Putin and Baroness Thatcher.
Bush nominated Danforth to become US ambassador to the UN. If confirmed by the Senate, Danforth will succeed John Negroponte, now ambassador to Iraq. Danforth would represent the US on the UN Security Council and in the sessions of the UN General Assembly.
Danforth joined Bryan Cave in 1995 after 18 years in the US Senate. Danforth is an experienced diplomat. In 2001 he was named special envoy to Sudan to mediate peace in its civil war, and in 1999 he was appointed special counsel to investigate the 1993 Waco siege.
