Harriet Miers Rejoins Texas Firm

Former White House counsel Harriet Miers is rejoining her Texas law firm.

Miers, a former chair of the ABA Journal Board of Editors, will be back at her desk at Locke Liddell & Sapp on May 1, according to reports in Texas Lawyer and the Dallas Morning News.

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.
