(Washington, D.C.)—Washington Legal Foundation (WLF) and the Chair of its Legal Policy Advisory Board, Jay B. Stephens, are pleased to announce that Sarah M. Harris, a partner with Williams & Connolly LLP, and Drew Tulumello, a partner with Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, have joined WLF’s Board.

Sarah is a member of Williams & Connolly’s highly respected Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice. Cases in which she has participated as counsel in federal and state appellate courts run the gamut of substantive areas, including constitutional law—especially First Amendment and separation-of-powers issues—as well as administrative law, arbitration, class actions, antitrust, False Claims Act litigation, and federal civil procedure. She clerked for Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, D.C. Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman, and First Circuit Judge Sandra Lynch.

Drew is Co-Head of Weil’s national Complex Commercial Litigation practice and is a member of the firm’s Appellate practice. He is a remarkably versatile practitioner, equally comfortable and accomplished arguing before the Supreme Court or strategizing with a Fortune 10 company’s legal department on a complex litigation matter or a sensitive government investigation. Drew has taught courses at Harvard Law School on alternative dispute resolution and at Georgetown University Law School on class-action law and practice. Before entering private practice, Drew clerked for Ninth Circuit Judge Pamela Ann Rymer and served in the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

“We are honored that Sarah and Drew have joined our Advisory Board,” said WLF Executive Director Glenn Lammi. “They have both brought numerous litigation opportunities to our attention, and both have donated their time to WLF as speakers at our Supreme Court briefings,” he added. “We look forward to benefiting from their involvement and insights for many years to come.”

WLF’s Legal Policy Advisory Board includes over forty distinguished professionals from the government and the legal, academic, and public-policy communities who serve on a volunteer basis. 

Celebrating its 45th year, WLF is America’s premier public-interest law firm and policy center advocating for free-market principles, limited government, individual liberty, and the rule of law.
