Ex-U.S. Attorney Brower joins law firm with Las Vegas office

Former U.S. Attorney for Nevada Gregory Brower is joining a law firm with an office in Las Vegas.

Snell & Wilmer LLP said Monday that Brower will be a partner at the firm, which has more than 400 attorneys practicing in eight offices, including Los Cabos in Mexico.

Brower was Nevada's U.S. attorney for nearly two years and announced plans to step down last month.

He will be replaced by Daniel Bogden, U.S. attorney for Nevada from 2001 to 2007 before becoming one of nine federal prosecutors told to resign by officials in the Bush administration's Justice Department.

Brower is a Republican former state assemblyman and general counsel to the federal Government Printing Office.

The firm says Brower will focus on civil litigation, corporate compliance matters and administrative law issues.
