George Thomas Conway III is an American attorney and a graduate of Harvard College and Yale Law School. He clerked for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit before becoming a partner at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.

Conway argued the 2010 case Morrison v. National Australia Bank before the U.S. Supreme Court; winning with a unanimous decision authored by Antonin Scalia. Conway was on the short list of candidates considered by President Donald Trump for United States Solicitor General prior to the nomination in March 2017 of Noel Francisco for that position. He was subsequently considered for Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.

Contents Early life and education

Conway graduated from Marlborough High School in Massachusetts. In 1984, Conway graduated from Harvard College with an A.B. degree magna cum laude in Biochemistry. In 1987, he obtained a J.D. degree from Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal, and president of the school's chapter of the Federalist Society.[1][2]

In 1987 and 1988, he served as a law clerk to Judge Ralph K. Winter, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In September 1988, Conway joined the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, and in January 1994 was named a partner.[3] His practice focuses on litigation involving securities, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, and antitrust.[3]

Conway was one of the lawyers who represented Paula Jones in her lawsuit against U.S. President Bill Clinton.[4][5] During the representation of Jones, he worked closely with Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge.[6] On March 29, 2010, Conway argued the securities case of Morrison v. National Australia Bank before the U.S. Supreme Court, and won with an 8–0 vote with an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia.[7]

Conway had been considered a candidate for some U.S. Department of Justice posts. In January 2017, Conway was considered for the post of Solicitor General along with Gregory G. Katsas, prior to the post going to Noel Francisco.[8][9][10] On March 17, 2017, Conway was reported to be the nominee as Assistant Attorney General to head the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.[11][12][13] However, on June 2, 2017, he announced that he declined to pursue the post.[14][15]
