We are pleased to report that our former partner Tony Herman, who left the firm in 2011 to become General Counsel of the Federal Election Commission, will be returning to the firm.  The firm formally announced Tony’s expected return today.  We look forward to Tony’s involvement in our Election and Political Law Practice Group.  He will bring unique and timely insights based on his recent FEC experience.  The last two FEC general counsels have been former Covington lawyers.  Our Election and Political Law Practice Group will now include a former FEC Chairman, Bob Lenhard, as well as a former FEC General Counsel, Tony Herman.
