Kathryn Ruemmler will rejoin Latham & Watkins LLP in June after serving in the Justice Department and as White House presidential counsel for five and a half years.
She will return to the firm as a partner with the litigation department based in Washington, Latham said Tuesday.
Prior to rejoining Latham, Ruemmler advised the president on the legal aspects of national security and domestic and foreign policy, as well as on cabinet matters pertaining to crisis management and the appointment of federal justices.
“I leave with great fondness and respect for my colleagues at the White House, the Department of Justice, and across the government. I am also excited to rejoin my friends and colleagues at Latham, ” said Ruemmler.
Ruemmler will also become a member of Latham’s white collar defense and investigations practice group when she returns to the firm.
She is a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center and the University of Washington in Seattle.
