Former White House counsel Harriet Miers is rejoining her Texas law firm.
Managing partner Jerry Clements told Texas Lawyer that Miers will build a lobbying practice and work on high-stakes commercial litigation.
Miers was the first woman hired at a predecessor firm in 1972. "Locke Liddell is like family to me," she is quoted saying in the firm's press release.
Miers had been nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court but withdrew following controversy over her qualifications.
