A top Department of Justice official is leaving for Wilkinson Barker Knauer, starting next month.
Nancy Libin, the chief privacy and civil liberties officer at DOJ, will join Wilkinson Barker as a partner in the firm's Washington office. She starts October 1.
During the three years Libin spent at the agency, she advised DOJ officials on matters related to the intersection of privacy and technology. Before joining DOJ, she was counsel to Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"Nancy's obvious talents and her extensive Administration experience in 21st Century privacy, data protection and cybersecurity issues will greatly enrich our firm's practice," managing partner Bryan Tramont said in a written statement.
Libin could not immediately be reached for comment.
