A group of White House lawyers who previously worked at Kirkland & Ellis have received blanket waivers allowing them to participate in matters involving their former firm, according to ethics disclosures.

The latest recipient of such a waiver is Patrick Philbin, a former Kirkland & Ellis partner whom White House counsel Pat Cipollone brought on as a deputy. The waiver is undated but was made available on the White House website Jan. 24. Three other former Kirkland & Ellis lawyers—Jennifer Dickey, a former associate, along with former partners John Eisenberg and Claire Murray—previously received similar waivers.
