Lawrence Cameron, a partner in McGuireWoods’ Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department, will leave the firm on Feb. 11, 2022, to join the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina as First Assistant U.S. Attorney, the office’s second-ranking position.
In his new position, Cameron will oversee the office’s day-to-day operations and supervise the Civil, Criminal, Appellate and Administrative divisions, while serving as chief adviser to the U.S. Attorney.
Since joining McGuireWoods’ Raleigh office in 2018, Cameron has represented corporate and individual clients in government and internal investigations, civil litigation, and regulatory enforcement and white collar criminal defense matters. He assists clients across industries, including financial services, defense contracting, healthcare and energy. He also sits on the steering committee of the firm’s Appellate Justice Initiative and is a member of McGuireWoods’ Racial Justice Task Force. Cameron previously was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina and an Assistant District Attorney in Wake County, North Carolina.
“I am honored and humbled to serve in this important role alongside one of the finest prosecutors I know,” Cameron said, referring to U.S. Attorney Dena J. King. “I have enjoyed working with many talented lawyers across offices and departments and appreciate the friendship and support of the firm and my colleagues as I move into this next phase of my legal career.”
Washington, D.C., partner Todd Steggerda, chair of McGuireWoods’ Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department, said, “I am privileged to have had Lawrence on our team for the past three years. He has our utmost respect, and I wish him the best in his exciting new role.”
