Former Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty will join Klores Perry Mitchell as a special counsel, the firm announced Thursday.
Bruce Klores, founding partner of the Washington-based boutique, said Fenty would handle a range of contingent-fee litigation for the firm.
“We’re really excited about it and we both think it’s a good fit,” said founding partner Bruce Klores. “We thought that Adrian could bring a sense of business acumen that he did in running the city.”
Klores said contingent-fee litigation better aligns the interest of lawyers and the clients they represent while rewarding efficiency and success. In a statement, Fenty said the contingent-fee model used by the firm now for its medical malpractice work was of great interest to him.
“The firm is also dedicated to values I believe are extremely important—fostering a high quality of life for its employees and for those who live in the Washington, D.C. area,” Fenty said.
