Andrew L. Sandler and Douglas Gansler were quoted in the BisNow article "Maryland Attorney General Becoming Real Lawyer" on January 23, 2015.
Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler transitioned to private practice this week, joining BuckleySandler after eight years heading the 467-lawyerOAG. True story: When Doug's mother found out he was joining a law firm, she called and said, "You're going to be a real lawyer!"
Following talks with 60 law firms (after last year's merger-fest, we didn't realize that many still existed), Doug found that 5-year-old BuckleySandler is the right fit because it's "hungry and growing." He'll help lead the government enforcement practice. The 150-lawyer firm began with a focus on financial institutions, and Doug wants to help its expansion in areas such as privacy and cybersecurity, state regulatory work, litigation and consumer protection.
