Ex-Homeland Security Secretary Johnson to Join New York Law Firm
By Steve Neavling
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh C. Johnson is joining the New York-based law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, where he previously worked.
The New York Times reports that he will be a partner in the firm’s litigation department.
From 2009-2012, Johnson led Homeland Security as the fourth director in the department’s history.
At the law firm, Johnson will advise clients on crisis management, internal investigations, regulatory matters, government and cybersecurity.
“I am excited to bring my public service experience back to Paul, Weiss, my private practice home since 1984,” said Johnson, who became the firm’s first African-American partner in 1994. “It’s a privilege to return to practice at one of the best law firms in the country, where lawyers are encouraged to serve both their clients and the public and give back to their communities.”
