Newsline: Former U.S. ambassador to Russia rejoins law firm

John Sullivan, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia during the Trump and Biden administrations, has rejoined law firm Mayer Brown to co-lead its national security practice. Sullivan, who was also a top U.S. State Department official under then-President Donald Trump and at one point served as acting Secretary of State, is now a partner at the 1,700-lawyer Mayer Brown, the firm said. (https://neuters.de/legal/government/former-russian-ambassador-rejoins-mayer-brown-law-firm-2023-01-05/) Sullivan exited his diplomatic role in Moscow in September. He said Mayer Brown was the only firm he seriously considered joining, after previously practicing there on and off since 1993. He will be based out of the Chicago-founded firm’s Washington, D.C., and New York offices, but said he plans to mainly work in D.C.
