Earlier this month, the Utah House committee chose Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, based in Washington, D.C., to work as its legal counsel.
Reich, who worked as deputy chief investigative counsel to Democrats on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and in the U.S. Senate during the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton, will be one of two lead attorneys. Prior to joining Akin Gump in July, he worked as an associate deputy attorney general to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
The other lead attorney, Steven Ross, heads the law firm's congressional investigation practice and is former general counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Along with the investigators, the House panel has put together an experienced group to look into Swallow.
“We expect this team will be thorough and professional,” Dunnigan said. “We have absolute confidence that the committee will be able to put together the facts we’ve been tasked to pursue.”
The House committee has held one meeting and plans to meet again Sept. 11. Dunnigan said the committee will discuss an action plan and timeline for the investigation.
