Former DOJ Official Rejoins King & Spalding

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 - 01:00

Jeffrey S. Bucholtz, formerly the Acting Assistant Attorney General and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, returned to King & Spalding as a partner in its national appellate practice in March.

Mr. Bucholtz left King & Spalding in 2002 to join the Justice Department. During his tenure at the Department, he handled and supervised a broad range of sensitive cases for the federal government, including administrative law cases, national security cases, suits challenging the constitutionality of federal statutes and regulations, criminal and civil enforcement matters and a wide variety of important matters for his client, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. During his service as Acting Assistant Attorney General, he managed over 800 lawyers.

King & Spalding's national appellate practice is headed by former U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement.

DeKalb County, Georgia-based Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence, will present its inaugural Judge Clarence F. Seeliger Local Justice Award to three King & Spalding lawyers at its annual Champion for Change luncheon in May. The King & Spalding lawyers were selected for their pro bono work in helping a Malawian citizen who immigrated to Tanzania and then to the U.S., where she encountered personal violence in both countries, obtain asylum in the United States. The award recipients are pro bono partner William Hoffmann and associates Frederica (Joy) White and Michael L. Weiss.
