Jack Quinn, White House counsel to Bill Clinton, will leave Quinn Gillespie & Associates in March to begin building a new "Law and Strategy" venture based in D.C. Quinn told us he likes practicing law and will use that umbrella to build a network for corporations that need help with investigations, litigation or expansion.

His new life: Quinn will also be a senior adviser to Burson Marsteller, keeping him in the WPP family, and will expand his advisory and investment activities with emerging companies and technologies.

The backstory: Quinn co-founded Quinn Gillespie & Associates with Ed Gillespie in 2000. In 2004, the firm was sold to advertising and public relations giant WPP.

His new firm: Quinn said clients want "legal and related services that are not soloed."

Don Baer, worldwide chair and CEO of the global strategic communications firm Burson-Marsteller, a WPP company, said: "With Jack as a senior adviser with whom we will partner, we look forward to continuing to work together to bring our clients the very best consulting and strategic communications services."
