Attorney News

WilmerHale is pleased to announce that Lauren Moore, former associate counsel to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., is joining the firm as a partner. Her practice will focus on crisis management, strategic response, and government enforcement.

Moore has experience in all three branches of federal government, having worked in the Biden White House, on Capitol Hill as General Counsel to then-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and as a law clerk to Judge Rosemary M. Collyer on the US District Court for the District of Columbia.

In the White House Counsel’s office, Moore helped craft legal and policy positions on civil rights and equity-related matters and worked with the Domestic Policy Council on the implementation of executive orders. She also helped to develop the government’s litigation strategy in Equal Protection Clause litigation related to the American Rescue Plan.

Before serving in the White House, Moore served as General Counsel to then-Senator Kamala D. Harris on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, where she advised on nominations, civil and criminal matters, and oversight of the US Department of Justice.  She also managed several high-profile confirmation hearings, as well as oversight hearings involving senior US Department of Justice officials. She previously served as Deputy General Counsel to Kamala Harris in 2018.

Earlier in her career, Moore worked as a senior associate in WilmerHale’s Government and Regulatory Litigation Group. She is returning to the firm as a key member of the firm’s industry-leading Strategic Response and Counseling Group.

“We are thrilled to have Lauren as a colleague again,” said Susan Murley, the firm’s Co-Managing Partner. “By any measure, she is a rising star whose broad experience in private practice and government service will greatly benefit our clients.”

“There are very few people who can operate at the intersection of law and policy, which is required to help clients in congressional investigations, anti-discrimination work as well as policy-related litigation and enforcement matters. Lauren brings a powerful combination of talent and experience in the public and private sectors,” said Jamie Gorelick, chair of the firm’s Regulatory and Government Affairs Department of which Moore will be part.

“I am thrilled to be rejoining the WilmerHale team. The firm’s top-ranked practice areas and deep talent pool provide a highly attractive platform for my practice,” said Moore. “I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues to help clients through their most serious legal and reputational challenges.”

Moore graduated from the University of Southern California in 2009 and Harvard Law School in 2012.
