Mythili Raman, the DOJ’s former Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, has joined 800-lawyer Covington & Burling as a partner, the firm said Tuesday.
She’ll practice in the firm’s D.C. office with the litigation and white collar groups.
Raman left the DOJ in late March.
Her predecessor at the Criminal Division, Lanny Breuer, also joined Covington & Burling after he left the DOJ in March 2013. He serves as the firm’s vice chair.
Raman joined the DOJ in 1996 and served in the Criminal Division and in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maryland.
In 2006, she moved to Main Justice as Senior Counsel to the Deputy Attorney General.
She served as Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division from 2013 to 2014.
“Throughout her career, Mythili has distinguished herself as one of the most respected and accomplished prosecutors in the country,” said Timothy Hester, chair of Covington & Burling’s management committee.
Raman earned her undergraduate degree from Yale in 1991 and her law degree from the University of Chicago in 1994.
After law school she clerked for Francis D. Murnaghan, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
