Attorney General Bill Mims will join a powerful law and lobbying firm after his 11-month stint in office ends in January.
Mims will become a partner in the Hunton & Williams firm in its administrative law and government relations practice after Ken Cuccinelli is sworn in as attorney general on Jan. 16.
The General Assembly appointed Mims in February to serve the remainder Bob McDonnell's term. McDonnell resigned as attorney general last winter to run his successful Republican campaign for governor.
The 52-year-old Mims is a former state senator from Loudoun County. He served as chief deputy attorney general under McDonnell.
