The firm’s ICL Practice consists of more than 100 lawyers, including 20 former Assistant U.S. Attorneys, throughout its New York, Washington, Boston, California and London offices. Machen will join another NAFUSA member, former FBI Director Bob Mueller.
Machen said,
I am thrilled to return to a firm with a top-notch global practice and a great culture. It was very tough to leave a job I loved, serving as United States Attorney, but I look forward to returning home to WilmerHale for the next phase of my career. I am excited about working with a dynamic group of white-collar lawyers at the firm to serve clients on the most difficult matters.
