NJ Gov. Phil Murphy’s associate counsel, Guillermo Artiles, has left the administration to rejoin McCarter & English.
Guillermo will take his year of experience in government to expand McCarter’s government affairs practice. In a phone interview with ROI-NJ, he said he learned a lot about the behind-the-scenes fights that shape the legislation the public sees.
“We can sleep well at nighttime because there are enough factions that balance each other out,” Guillermo said. “I know there are a lot of people that talk about the levers of power. There really are balances to each of those levers that truly swing in both directions. That negotiation is very healthy and that is something I am going to bring back to the clients.”
