A watchdog group is suing for information about whether Tommy Beaudreau, a former Latham & Watkins LLP partner who is now second-in-command at the U.S. Department of the Interior, has taken any actions that could benefit his former clients in violation of his ethical duties at the DOI.
In a complaint filed Thursday in Washington, D.C., federal court, Protect the Public’s Trust said Latham appears to still represent several clients with business before the DOI, where Beaudreau is now deputy secretary of the interior.
