career in public service he was known for working with Democrats and

issues that mattered most. He will help us and our clients understand how to get
things done in an environment rife with partisan perils but aching for sensible,
common ground solutions."
McGuireWoods is one of the nation’s largest and most diverse law firms, with

Washington but in state capitals around the country.
“I am honored to join McGuireWoods,” said Bayh. “I’ve always been impressed
by the top-notch professionalism, excellent character and collegial atmosphere
here. The firm’s national and increasingly global presence gives me a broad
platform to develop a challenging practice serving a wide variety of clients at
the highest level.”
In addition to his practice at McGuireWoods, Senator Bayh is a senior advisor
at Apollo Global Management in New York, and will continue to speak on the
pressing issues facing our nation and the world.
