Starting next month, Greg Jacob will be a part of O'Melveny's Employee Retirement Income Security Act litigation and labor and employment practices, where he will represent financial services companies and other employers in class actions and various labor and employment matters, according to the firm's announcement.

Jacob served with the Trump administration through Jan. 20, advising the White House Coronavirus Task Force on the Defense Production Act and other legal matters related to supply chain concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to O'Melveny. He also directly advised Pence on the vice president's role in presiding over the counting of Electoral College votes, the firm said.
