A little about him: Abbe David Lowell is an American defense attorney who has represented numerous high profile political figures, including Bob Menendez, John Edwards, Jared Kushner, Jim Wright, Dan Rostenkowski, Charles Keating, Joseph McDade, Joe Bruno, Gary Condit, and Jim Gibbons, among others.
WASHINGTON, DC & NEW YORK, NY: The legal team representing Jared Kushner, White House senior advisor and President Trump’s son-in-law, is looking to hire a crisis PR firm.
Abbe Lowell, Kushner’s attorney, confirmed the search to the Washington Post, saying he’s looking for crisis counsel to represent all his high-profile clients.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has been probing Kushner’s dealings with former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who is cooperating with the investigation into Russian meddling in the US elections.
Lowell has contacted at least two firms about working for Kushner.
In August, the family business of Kushner hired crisis-savvy Finsbury of WPP following reports that federal prosecutors were probing the financing of some of some properties of Kushner Cos.
