FBI's Mueller Joins WilmerHale
Former FBI director Robert Mueller (pictured in a Bisnow archive pic from 2008) started at WilmerHale as a partner on Monday. The longest-serving FBI chief since Hoover, he'll be focusing on internal investigations, crisis management, cybersecurity, and privacy issues, says WilmerHale co-chair Bob Novick. Mueller's a UVA Law grad who spent time as a Hale & Dorr partner, US Attorney, and assistant AG before his 12 years heading the FBI. Bob tells us that Mueller's addition is "absolutely indicative of larger growth" at the firm in areas of privacy and cybersecurity.
