The Revolving Door

A Legal Times article (available on Law.Com here) discusses some of the recent moves from government into private firms and in-house counsel positions of leading government lawyers.  Prosecutorial and regulatory experience is a significant plus, and it's no secret that a stint in the government is an important asset in representing clients before one's former agency.  The revolving door swings both ways, of course, as prominent attorneys, such as Harvey Pitt, have moved back into leadership roles in the the government, even if it's only for a short time.  Even the two people who write a blog about white collar crime can be ex-prosecutors, not that there's anything wrong with that.
