Oxley of Sarbox joins Baker Hostetler

The co-author of the US’s infamous Sarbanes-Oxley Act (Sarbox) has entered private practice, joining Ohio-headquartered Baker Hostetler in Washington DC. Michael Oxley, who was an Ohio representative in Congress (the US equivalent of an MP) until January this year, will join Baker Hostetler’s 80-lawyer DC office as of counsel and will build up a public policy group. This will be Oxley’s first spell in a law firm. Before going into politics he worked at the FBI for three years.
