Greenberg Traurig finally has something to smile about. After a week of bad news, including the disbarment of the firm’s former New York tax chair, Jay Gordon, over a $1.2 million tax shelter scheme, Greenberg shored up its defense-industry practice in Washington by hiring former Army congressional budget liaison chief Christopher Romig and welcoming back retired Maj. Gen. John Altenburg Jr. Romig, 48, joins as a director of government affairs and will lobby on defense appropriations and budget processes. Altenburg, 62, returns as of counsel after a two-and-a-half-year leave of absence. He was tapped in 2003 by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to replace then-deputy defense secretary Paul Wolfowitz as appointing authority for the war commission at Guant�namo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. While Altenburg acknowledges that he isn’t bringing back a big book of business, he says he’ll be helping out colleagues on government contract and government relations work and also trying to score his own clients. But, don’t expect to see him on Capitol Hill anytime soon. Altenburg says he’ll be working mostly at the agency level including the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Homeland Security. “We’re clearly building up our national security and homeland defense practice,” says Altenburg of Greenberg’s growth strategy.
