Sen. Evan Bayh joins McGuireWoods
- January 31, 2011
Evan Bayh, a U.S. senator from 1999 to 2011 and the former two-term governor of Indiana, has joined McGuireWoods as a partner in the firm’s Washington office. The firm said Monday that Bayh will serve as an adviser to significant domestic and international clients, particularly those whose business goals are affected by public policy, the actions of Congress, the executive branch, or by governors and legislatures across the country.
“Senator Bayh provides a rare and timely perspective for our clients,” Richard Cullen, McGuireWoods’ chairman, said in a statement. “Throughout his long and distinguished career in public service he was known for working with Democrats and Republicans, not to score political points, but rather to drive consensus around issues that mattered most.”
Bayh also will serve as a senior adviser to McGuireWoods Consulting, the firm’s public affairs subsidiary. In addition to his practice at McGuireWoods, Bayh is a senior adviser at Apollo Global Management in New York.
