Ballard Spahr has announced that Pennsylvania First Deputy Attorney General Adrian R. King, Jr., who recently resigned that position, is rejoining the firm as a partner, on June 16. Mr. King had spent seven years as a Ballard Spahr partner before joining Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane's office, serving as the top deputy attorney general for 16 months.

Mr. King said, “I have great friends at Ballard. They also happen to be great attorneys, and I look forward to going back and working with them and working with our clients.”

Ballard Spahr Chair Mark Stewart said that Mr. King is a “dedicated public servant and an outstanding lawyer” and the firm is pleased to welcome him back: “During his time in Harrisburg, Adrian was involved in high-profile issues such as helping the commonwealth recoup $120 million in contested tobacco settlement money. He returns to Ballard with an even greater understanding of state government, something this firm and clients deeply appreciate.”
