‘The very purpose of the independent review is to discern what, if any, rules, regulations, or laws might have been violated and by whom,’ former Maryland attorney general Doug Gansler wrote Monday in response to questions about his leading an investigation into a Pennsylvania government email scandal.

Gansler to join D.C. law firm

Outgoing Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler won’t be out of a job very long.

The two-term Democrat who unsuccessfully ran for governor this year announced Tuesday that he will become a partner in the Washington DC-based BuckeySandler LLP upon leaving office in January.

“I am very proud of the work my offices and I have done in my eight years as Maryland’s Attorney General and eight years as State’s Attorney for Montgomery County and am grateful for the chance to have served the citizens of Maryland,” Gansler said in a press release from the firm. “I am very excited about becoming a part of this unique firm and applying my AG and litigation experience to further expand and enhance the firm’s nationally recognized enforcement and litigation practices.”

Gansler will lead the firm’s state and federal government enforcement practice and work with clients on complying with cybersecurity and privacy regulations.

“Doug’s first-hand insight into the current enforcement and regulatory landscape will be invaluable as we assist our clients in navigating the government enforcement challenges they confront on a daily basis. His arrival adds another formidable trial lawyer to our talented enforcement and litigation team,” said BuckleySandler Chairman and Executive Partner, Andrew L. Sandler.
