Kansas City law firm announces Grissom as newest addition
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A Kansas City, Missouri, law firm says Kansas' U.S. attorney will join its national team specializing in government investigations and compliance.
Polsinelli announced its addition of Barry Grissom on Friday, Grissom's last day as Kansas' top federal prosecutor. Grissom announced his resignation from the federal post Monday.
Sixty-two-year-old Grissom says in a statement that he's "particularly excited by Polsinelli's national footprint, which will enable me to deploy my skillset nationwide."
First Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Beall will serve as acting U.S. attorney for Kansas.
Grissom was nominated by President Barack Obama in 2010 and made civil rights enforcement and community outreach top priorities during his tenure.
