Senior White House International Economic Advisor Rejoins Sidley Austin LLP.
"We are delighted that Dan has returned to assume a leadership role in the firm," said Thomas A. Cole, Chair of Sidley's Executive Committee. "His experience will be invaluable for our clients."
Mr. Price recently completed service as Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs in the Administration of George W. Bush. In this role, Mr. Price was the senior White House official responsible for international economic issues, including international trade and investment, foreign assistance, humanitarian relief, and the international aspects of financial system reform, energy security and climate change. Additionally, Mr. Price was President Bush's personal representative to the G-8, the G-20 Financial Summit and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum. He also served as the U.S. chair of various cabinet-level bilateral economic dialogues, including the Transatlantic Economic Council, the U.S. - Brazil CEO Forum and the U.S. - India CEO Dialogue.
"Dan is a brilliant lawyer and an enormously effective advocate," said Henry M. Paulson, Jr., former Treasury Secretary who worked closely with Mr. Price. "He was a key player in international economic matters. He is a wonderful colleague and highly regarded around the world. Sidley is fortunate to have him back."
Joshua B. Bolten, former White House Chief of Staff, agreed noting, "Dan is a real superstar. Sidley and its clients will benefit greatly from his strategic thinking, grasp of world economic affairs and extraordinary energy and effectiveness."
Before joining the Bush Administration, Mr. Price chaired the International Trade and Dispute Resolution group at Sidley.
"Dan is the founder of our group, and I am thrilled to welcome him home in his expanded role at the firm," said Andrew Shoyer, who succeeded Mr. Price as chair of the 50-person group. "His experience at the White House, not only on trade but on such cutting-edge issues as global financial regulation and climate change, will greatly enhance our practice."
From 2002-2007, Mr. Price also served by Presidential appointment on the Panel of Arbitrators of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and was a party-appointed arbitrator in a number of investment disputes. President Bush re-appointed Mr. Price to the ICSID Panel as of January 20, 2009.
Earlier in his career, Mr. Price was Principal Deputy General Counsel in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (1989 to 1992). He also served in The Hague as Deputy Agent of the United States to the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal (1984 to 1986) and in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the State Department (1982 to 1984).
Mr. Price received a BA with High Honors in History from Haverford College in 1977, a Diploma in Legal Studies in 1979 from Cambridge University where he was a Keasbey Scholar and a JD from Harvard Law School in 1981 where he was Articles Editor of the Harvard Law Review.
He has been a member of the Executive Council of the American Society of International Law, the Advisory Board of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, the U.S. Secretary of State's Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy and the Advisory Committee of the Institute of International Economic Law of Georgetown University.
