Utah A.G. Mark Shurtleff to take job with international law firm
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff intends to work for an international law firm in Washington, D.C., after he leaves office in January.
The three-term Republican has accepted a job with Troutman Sanders, which specializes in business law, energy and industry regulation, finance, litigation and real estate. It has more than 600 lawyers and offices in the U.S. and China.
“Mark's addition will strengthen and enhance Troutman Sanders' state regulatory expertise in a number of areas, including privacy, data security, state consumer protection issues and matters involving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau," said Ashley L. Taylor Jr., who heads the firm's state attorneys general team and its regulatory compliance and government litigation practice.
Shurtleff's experience working with the other states through the National Association of Attorneys General will be of tremendous value to the firm's clients, especially in multistate investigations, she said.
“I have been honored to serve the people of Utah for the past 12 years, so leaving public office was a difficult choice for me,” Shurtleff said. “But I am excited about the opportunity to join the country's leading state attorneys general team.”
