Election law just isn’t what it used to be. With more money and more people involved in campaigns at every level, lawyers working in the relatively small field are seeing an uptick in business opportunities and job demands. The National Law Journal sat down with Perkins Coie partner Marc Elias, who served as general counsel of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, to talk about the phenomenon. Between redistricting cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, President Donald Trump’s focus on voter fraud and upcoming elections heading into 2020, Elias said there’s plenty of work on the horizon.
