Miguel E. Rodriguez has been hired by the firm Bryan Cave as a partner to provide advice and counsel on a broad range of legislative, regulatory and policy matters.
Mr. Rodriguez previously served as an assistant to President Obama and director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs. In the position, Mr. Rodriguez served as the president's primary liaison to Congress, working on the administration's legislative agenda.
"I'm excited to be joining Bryan Cave and its strong bipartisan public policy and government affairs practice," Mr. Rodriguez said in a press release.

Prior to joining the Obama administration, Mr. Rodriguez was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Senate Affairs at the U.S. Department of State. He also served as Chief Counsel for then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton from 2005 through 2009.

Lents, chair of Bryan Cave, said in a release. Mr. Rodriguez will work along Senior Policy Advisors Jack Oliver and David Russell.
The law firm has more than 1,000 attorneys worldwide and represents a wide variety of companies including individuals, financial, institutional as well as publicly held multinational corporations.
