Bloomberg Law: High Court Heavyweights on the Move in 2019December 27, 2019
After more than 30 years at the Department of Justice, former deputy US solicitor Michael Dreeben is joining O’Melveny, this Bloomberg Law article reported.
“The solicitor general’s office lost Supreme Court legend Michael Dreeben, who was the federal government’s top criminal lawyer at the U.S. Supreme Court,” the article noted. “He’s one of just a handful of lawyers who have argued more than 100 cases at the high court. He made his first appearance in 1989 against now-Chief Justice John Roberts, who was also making his SCOTUS debut.”
