Former U.S. attorney Fitzgerald takes job at Chicago law firm
Former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has a new job.
Fitzgerald plans to join Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. Fitzgerald will become a partner in the corporate law firm's Chicago office on Oct. 29.
During his tenure as U.S. attorney, Fitzgerald gained recognition for leading investigations into terrorism and organized crime, as well as the prosecutions of two Illinois governors. He stepped down as the top federal prosecutor in Chicago earlier this year.
Fitzgerald says he picked Skadden over other large firms because of its global reach and the opportunity to do some public-interest work.
Skadden has about 1,800 lawyers in 23 offices around the world, including about 170 attorneys in Chicago.
