New U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Appointed
Word has it that the new Ambassador to Denmark is soon to be appointed. Jyllands-Posten reported that Laurie Susan Fulton, a top D.C. lawyer and ex-wife of well-known former Senator Thomas Daschle is the selected Ambassador to The Kingdom of Denmark. It’s not yet 100 percent official though as of this writing. Apparently it will take a couple more days before the Senate gives final nomination, which is said to be a formality at this point.
Ms. Fulton has specialized primarily in civil litigation, internal investigations and white-collar criminal defense. She’s also been involved in consumer class action suits and products liability litigations. She serves as Co-Chair and previously on the Board of Directors at the United States Institute of Peace, an institute funded by Congress to “prevent and resolve violent international conflicts, promote post-conflict stability and development, and increase conflict management capacity, tools, and intellectual capital worldwide.” Here is her full bio on Williams and Connolly’s Web site.
