A former adviser to Bill Clinton, who was once dubbed as having "the worst job in Washington", is joining Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe as a litigation partner.
Lanny Davis, who served as the White House special counsel from 1996 until 1998, as Clinton was fighting the Whitewater and 'Donorgate' scandals, will join Orrick's DC office at the end of October.
He has extensive experience as a lawyer and a lobbyist. Prior to his White House appointment, Davis was with Patton Boggs, one of DC's top lobbying firms, from 1975, where he returned after serving Clinton.
During his many years at Patton Boggs, Davis was responsible for starting the group's well-regarded crisis communications department.
Elsewhere in DC, Hunton & Williams has signed an alliance deal with JC Watts & Co, set up by the former house Republican conference chairman JC Watts. The deal is the latest in the cross-pollination between law firms and DC lobbying groups. The Lawyer revealed last month that Covington & Burling had signed up with Henry Kissinger's Kissinger McLarty Associates.
