Up-and-comer Shanmugam leaves DOJ for private practice

SCOTUSblog is reporting that Kannon Shanmugam, the assistant to the Solicitor General who was hailed as one of Lawyers USA‘s “Up & Coming Lawyers of 2007” for his winning record before the Supreme Court, is leaving the Department of Justice after four years. During his time in the SG’s office, he won six of the eight cases he argued before the high court – all before reaching the age of 35.

Shanmugam will become a partner at Williams & Connolly on Oct. 6 – the day the U.S. Supreme Court begins oral arguments for the term. More here from the firm’s website.
