Vice President Mike Pence retains Furman alum as legal counsel

The Washington Post was the first to report that Pence had “hired outside legal counsel to help with both congressional committee inquiries and the special counsel investigation into possible collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia. The vice president’s office said Thursday that Pence has retained Richard Cullen, a Richmond-based lawyer and chairman of McGuireWoods who previously served as a U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.”

Cullen is a 1971 graduate of Furman who majored in political science. He is a member of the Furman Board of Trustees, and has previously served as board chair. He is chairman of McGuire Woods LLP, a law firm with over 1,000 lawyers and 23 offices in the United States and abroad.
