FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE LAWRENCE EAGLEBURGER NAMED SENIOR FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR TO BAKER, WORTHINGTON, CROSSLEY, STANSBERRY & WOOLF

 WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Baker, Worthington, Crossley, Stansberry & Woolf, the law firm headed by former Sen. Howard Baker, announced today that Lawrence S. Eagleburger, a veteran diplomat who served the last four years as deputy secretary of state and secretary of state, will join the firm's international division.
 "It's a real honor to welcome someone of Larry Eagleburger's caliber and character to our professional team," Baker said. "No one has a better grasp of world affairs and the changes now taking place on the global landscape. His experience and expertise will strengthen our ability to counsel our clients who are considering how best to be a part of the exciting trade, investment and other economic opportunities being created abroad.
 "Given the economic transformations now under way in this hemisphere, Western and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, we believe Lawrence Eagleburger's advice holds great value for American companies seeking new markets and new international partners in the global economy," Baker said. "This represents a significant enhancement of our capabilities in the increasingly important international arena."
 With 35 years of foreign policy experience and a distinguished career in public service, Eagleburger will serve as senior foreign policy advisor to Baker Worthington, advising American clients on business risks and opportunities abroad. He is the second Cabinet member from the Bush administration to become affiliated with the firm. Former Secretary of Education Lamar Alexander announced last week that he has become counsel to the firm and will be resident in the Nashville office.
 Baker said, "Representing companies doing business globally has always been part of our practice." Eagleburger, he said, "is a major enhancement to that side of our practice and will contribute in a major way to our continued expansion and to our ability to assess and meet the needs of our clients."
 Eagleburger, 62, described the move as "a unique opportunity to help American companies identify and take advantage of trade and investment opportunities in a global economy in the throes of dramatic, historic change. For many companies, the key to future growth lies in foreign markets. And for many countries making the difficult transition to freer economies and freer markets, the key to success will be American investment and involvement."
 Eagleburger helped chart and guide U.S. foreign policy through the turbulent end of the Cold War and most recently through the conclusion of the most sweeping nuclear arms reduction agreement in history, conflict in the Balkans, confrontation in the Persian Gulf and the signing of a sweeping multinational accord on the destruction and ultimate ban on the use or possession of chemical weapons.
 He joined the foreign service in 1957 after earning a Master of Science degree at the University of Wisconsin and later served in a variety of high-level diplomatic and policymaking posts in the State Department, White House and Defense Department. He was U.S. ambassador to Yugoslavia from 1977-81, assistant secretary of state for European and Canadian affairs in 1981-82 and undersecretary of state for political affairs in 1982-84. Eagleburger is the recipient of the Distinguished Civilian Service Medal from the Department of Defense, the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service, the Department of State Distinguished Honor Award and the President's Citizens Medal. From 1984 to 1989, he was president of Kissinger Associates, Inc.
 Baker, Worthington, Crossley, Stansberry & Woolf traces its origins back over 100 years and has evolved into one of the largest law firms in Tennessee, with five offices throughout the state. Four years ago, the firm opened an office in Washington specializing in law pertaining to public policy, corporate and banking, securities, transportation and international affairs.
