Today is Chuck Blanchard’s last day at Perkins Coie Brown & Bain. He is off to begin his work in the Obama administration as General Counsel to the Air Force. It is a great opportunity and a good fit for him–he served as General Counsel to the Army under Clinton. Still, I am sad to see him go. He was my first introduction to the firm, and I have had the pleasure of working for him on some of the most interesting political law cases we’ve had a PCB&B. He will be missed.
