Pai Joins Law Firm Jenner & Block


Ajit Pai, deputy general counsel and associate general counsel for the FCC has joined law firm Jenner & Block in Washington as a member of its communications practice.

Before joining the FCC in 2007 under then-chairman Kevin Martin, Pai's resume included deputy chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts and senior counsel in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Policy, and associate general counsel at Verizon.

Jenner & Block's communications practice is headed by Pai's former boss, one-time FCC general counsel Samuel Feder. "I was very impressed with him when he was my associate general counsel at the FCC and I am looking forward to working with him again," Feder said.
