Munger, Tolles & Olson hires ex-DOJ attorney


Munger, Tolles & Olson has hired Ginger Anders as of counsel in its Washington DC office.

Anders previously worked at the US Department of Justice where she was assistant to the solicitor general and a deputy assistant attorney general in the office of legal counsel.

She has represented the US before the Supreme Court in 18 oral arguments, including high profile cases such as Teva Pharmaceuticals v Sandoz and Limelight v Akamai.

Donald Verrilli, former solicitor general and a partner in Munger, Tolles & Olson’s Washington DC office, said: “Ginger Anders is a brilliant litigator who demonstrated impressive mastery of the law in her numerous appearances before the Supreme Court.”

“Her experience working on the nation’s most influential cases, and her deep expertise on intellectual property matters, will deliver significant value and insight for our clients as they navigate their most complicated legal challenges.”

Commenting on the move, Anders said: “I am thrilled to join such a high calibre and inclusive firm, one that is deeply trusted by its clients and well-regarded for its dedication to public service.”

“I look forward to working with the firm’s clients and bringing to bear the perspective that comes from advocating in both government and private practice.”
