I've now heard from both sides of the aisle and throughout the legal community that Haley Barbour will be going to work for the Butler Snow law firm upon leaving office next month. If true, Butler Snow has pulled off a major hire, even for one of the most respected firms in town. Barbour's contacts around the globe are hardly matched, and could provide a veritable flood of business for Butler Snow.
I've always assumed that Barbour would return to his wildly successful former lobbying firm, Barbour, Griffith, & Rogers in D.C., but maybe not. If true, kudos to Butler Snow, and welcome back to private life, Governor Barbour.
UPDATE 12/20/11 - A recent story in the Clarion-Ledger seems to deny the above.
