Mr. Harris returns to Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis after five years away, during which time he served as General Counsel of the U.S. Department of Energy, General Counsel of Neustar, Inc., and most recently as a Managing Partner of Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP.

"I am thrilled to return to HWG," Harris said. "It has only improved in my absence and I look forward to working with the extraordinary team here on behalf of the firm's clients.  I am also very grateful for having had the opportunity to work with wonderful colleagues over the last five years at the Department of Energy, Neustar, and Wilkinson Barker."

Mark Grannis, Managing Partner of HWG, said "Scott Harris has truly earned his reputation as one of the keener legal minds in Washington and one of the most influential lawyers in the telecom and energy bars.  We also know him as the guy who did more than anyone else to build our firm into what it is today.  Having him back is as satisfying personally as it is professionally."

Mr. Harris was the first Chief of the International Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission, and he continues to be a leader in the communications bar.  He is currently serving as the Co-Chair of the Federal Communication Commission's Advisory Committee on the 2015 World Radio Conference, and as a member of the Department of State's Advisory Committee on Communications and International Policy.  In addition, while at the Department of Energy, he served as Co-Chair of the Broadband Subcommittee of the White House's National Science and Technology Council.  Mr. Harris is also serving as a member of the Department of Energy's Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Advisory Committee.  In addition to his service at the FCC and the Energy Department, Mr. Harris has served as Chief Counsel for Export Administration in the U.S. Department of Commerce.  Early in his career, he was a law clerk to the Honorable Gerhard A. Gesell on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
