McGuireWoods LLP announced today that
Cullen, chairman of the firm, and
McNamee, a partner, have been named to serve on Attorney General-elect Ken
Cuccinelli’s transition team. Cullen is one of three people named as chair of
the transition team, while McNamee will serve as the executive director of the
transition, overseeing day-to-day operations. Andy Miller, a former Virginia
Attorney General and Patrick McSweeney, a former United States Justice
Department official, are serving as chairs along with Cullen.
A former Virginia attorney general and a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern
District of Virginia, Cullen has served on transition teams for the past two
Virginia attorneys general. Prior to McGuireWoods, McNamee served as chief
deputy to former Virginia Attorney General Judy Jagdmann, and he was chief
counsel to former Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore.
“It is an honor for me to be selected to serve in this role for the attorney
general-elect,” Cullen said. “There is a lot of work to do to ensure a smooth
transition, and I’m looking forward to getting started.”
