A former Justice Department attorney has joined the Washington office of King & Spalding, the firm announced Tuesday.
Alexander Haas joins the firm as counsel after eight years with the agency. Haas spent the past two years as counsel for the Office of Law and Policy in DOJ's national security division. During the six years before that, he worked in the agency's civil division.
Haas will focus on civil litigation, in particular regulatory enforcement proceedings and government investigation. He will also conduct corporate internal investigations.
"During his time at the Department of Justice, Alex has cultivated a diverse expertise that will benefit King & Spalding clients across a number of practices areas," Kevin Sullivan, practice leader for the firm's litigation and antitrust group in Washington, said in a written statement.
