For Scott Thomas and Michael Nannes, working under the same roof has been a long time coming. Thomas, the former Federal Election Commission chairman, and Nannes, the managing partner of Dickstein Shapiro Morin & Oshinsky, have been playing weekly basketball pickup games since meeting in 1974 as law school classmates at Georgetown University Law Center. Last week, Thomas signed on as counsel with Dickstein after spending 30 years at the FEC. The move comes after Thomas’ tenure was not renewed by the Bush administration in December. The firm is not well-known for its FEC practice, but Nannes says he hopes to build it up. Says Thomas: “There are going to be a lot of businesses wanting to assure themselves that the way they are operating is in compliance with the [FEC] rules.” Thomas was mum on whether or not he’ll lobby his former agency once his year-long lobbying ban is up.
