Law - Solicitor General Olson will return to former firm

The Washington Post is reporting here today that:

Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson, a prominent conservative and the Bush administration's top attorney for three years, is returning next week to his former law firm, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

Olson, 63, will lead the firm's client crisis management team and serve as co-chair of the appellate and constitutional law practice group, along with Miguel Estrada in Washington and Theodore J. Boutrous Jr. in Los Angeles.

Boutrous said in an interview that Olson's practice had always had a public policy component and that it would do so again, coming up with solutions for complex legal issues that might involve legislative and regulatory considerations before litigation becomes necessary.

"He is uniquely qualified to work with clients to develop strategies to address their legal problems in a framework that addresses relevant social and policy concerns, while being sensitive to the media and other relevant constituencies," managing partner Ken Doran said in a statement.

Here is a copy of the firm's press release.
