Just days removed from stepping down as state House majority leader, former Del. C. William Frick (D-Montgomery) has landed at a new law firm.
Frick, whose 11-year legislative career ended last week, is joining the firm Cuneo Gilbert & Laduca, LLP, whose office is in the Friendship Heights neighborhood in Washington, D.C.
In a news release Tuesday, the firm said Frick would concentrate primarily on government relations and would establish a new commercial litigation practice that focuses on continuing to work with Maryland business, associations and individuals. He will also work on antitrust and consumer protection cases.
Until recently, Frick worked at the international law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, LLP, representing clients in high stakes class action litigation, defending companies facing government investigations, and helping clients address governmental legal and policy challenges.
Frick was appointed to the House to fill a vacancy in 2007 and subsequently won two terms. He began running for state attorney general in the 2014 but ultimately chose to seek reelection instead. He began running for Congress in 2017 but switched to the race for Montgomery County executive, where he finished well behind the pack in the six-way Democratic primary.
Frick was one of four attorneys whose hires were announced by the firm this week.
“These proven powerhouse attorneys are each exceptional and add new dimensions to our growing practice areas,” said Charles J. LaDuca, the firm’s chairman.
