Good thing Samuel Walker never was much of a Budweiser guy. As the new U.S. general counsel of Golden, Colorado’s Coors Brewing Company and a professed fan of Coors Lite, Walker won’t have any problems helping the company trounce its larger rival.

Walker joined Coors in late October as the company’s second-highest-ranked lawyer. On top of overseeing all domestic legal affairs for the brewmeister, he also serves as group vice president for public affairs. He reports to Robert Reese, the chief legal officer of parent Adolph Coors Company and the former general counsel of Hershey Foods Corporation. Reese, in turn, joined the company’s 13-attorney department in late 2001 to replace M. Caroline Turner, who stepped down after some 15 years as Coors’s chief lawyer.

Walker was previously a partner in Wiley Rein & Fielding, a politically connected 225-attorney shop in Washington, D.C. There, he headed the firm’s ten-lawyer labor and employment practice, counting Coors and Hershey among his key clients. Reese was the one who lured Walker to Coors.
