KaiserDillon PLLC Welcomes William Pittard, Former Acting General Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives
KaiserDillon PLLC, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm that represents individuals and small businesses in government investigations, white-collar matters, and complex commercial litigation, is pleased to announce that William Pittard, the former Acting General Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives, has joined the firm as a partner. Mr. Pittard’s practice will focus on representing clients in government investigations and complex criminal and civil litigation matters. The move follows closely on last month’s announcement that Jonathan S. Jeffress, a former Assistant Federal Public Defender for the District of Columbia, had joined the firm.
“I’ve known Matt Kaiser and Jon Jeffress since our time together at Williams & Connolly,” said Mr. Pittard. “KaiserDillon has a fantastic government investigations and professional ethics practice, and I’m looking forward to helping expand our service offerings, particularly in the areas of congressional investigations and litigation involving other legislative matters.”
Mr. Pittard has extensive experience litigating cutting-edge Legislative Branch cases and working on the scope of Congress’s ability to secure information or documents. He has also worked with clients facing white-collar criminal charges and on cases involving professional ethics.
Prior to joining KaiserDillon, Mr. Pittard served in the Office of General Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives for more than five years. In that role, he acted as legal counsel to Members and employees of the House on matters related to their official duties. Before joining the House, he practiced at Williams & Connolly LLP, where he litigated complex criminal and civil cases from inception through trial and appeal.
“Bill’s background is a seamless fit for KaiserDillon,” said founding partner Matt Kaiser. “Bill is a natural litigator; tenacious, smart, and fearless for his clients. We’re very excited to welcome him. Having both Bill and Jon Jeffress come to the firm in the span of five weeks is a tremendous boon to the firm and our clients, and it reinforces our position as a go-to firm for critical, high-stakes criminal and civil trials and investigations in DC and beyond.”
Mr. Pittard earned his J.D., with honors, from the University of Chicago Law School and his B.A., magna cum laude, from Wake Forest University. He served as a law clerk to the Honorable Robert H. Henry of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and the Honorable Louis F. Oberdorfer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
