New St. Louis Partner Reggie Harris was featured Oct. 24 in The St. Louis American for his recent move to Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. Harris joined the firm from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri, where he worked from 2002 to 2019 investigating and prosecuting significant federal criminal matters. His practice at BCLP will focus on white collar criminal matters, internal investigations, corporate compliance, and civil trial and appellate litigation. “You take the same oath,” Harris told the publication. “When you are an assistant U.S. attorney, essentially you have one client, the United States. Here, I will have a number of different clients, and mostly all of them will be private. But the job in essence is the same: to represent my client zealously, maintain client confidentiality, and comport myself within the rules of ethics and professional responsibility.”
