Fourteen were signed into law, including a major pension reform and a rewrite of the “No Child Left Behind” education law.
Sullivan first gained significant private-sector experience during her eight-year stint in the public law and policy practice at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where she represented a diverse mix of clients on a wide range of issues, including intellectual property, financial services, budget and appropriations, agriculture, environmental and defense and space policy.
