Lori Kalani, who is currently DISH Network's director of government affairs and senior counsel, has signed on to join Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe's Washington office as senior counsel in January. Kalani will practice in Orrick's government and strategic affairs group.
Adam Goldberg, a partner in that group, said Kalani will be a “great addition” because she brings with her years of working with state attorneys general, state legislatures, and Congress on consumer protection, tax, and other legal issues. Goldberg said that Kalani’s practice at Orrick will focus on advising clients on investigations, public policy, and competition issues.
“Lori has gotten to know virtually every attorney general and every attorney general’s office and has established a great deal of credibility with all of them,” he said. “That experience is going to be a major benefit to our clients.”
According to Goldberg, the firm began talking to Kalani about joining about four months ago. He said the firm was impressed with her work at DISH, which is an Orrick client.
