Abid Qureshi, a partner at Latham & Watkins and the global chairman of the firm’s pro bono practice, is being vetted by the White House for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, according to four sources familiar with the process.

Qureshi has spent his career at Latham, making partner in 2006 and becoming head of the pro bono committee in 2012. The pro bono post “seems like a culmination of my entire time at Latham & Watkins,” he told The National Law Journal in 2012, when he was recognized as a legal “champion” for his pro bono work. His clients have included prisoners, foreign-educated physical therapists and the National Organization of Concerned Black Men.
