Troy Eid, presently the U.S. attorney for Colorado, will join law firm Greenberg Traurig as a litigation partner in its Denver office. Eid previously worked at the firm from 2003 to 2006. Eid also announced his plans to run for state attorney general in 2010.
Eid was appointed U.S. Attorney by Pres. George W. Bush in 2006, and his office handled the insider-trading prosecution of former Qwest Communications International Inc. CEO Joseph Nacchio. That conviction is currently on appeal.
He is the first Egyptian-American to become a U.S. attorney, according to the Denver Business Journal.
