Anthony P. Campau

Director of Government Regulation; Counsel

Anthony P. Campau is Director of Government Regulation and Counsel in the Government & Regulatory Affairs group in the Washington, DC and Detroit offices of Clark Hill. Anthony brings a wealth of experience in a wide range of complex legal, regulatory, and policy issues. He helps companies, associations, and institutions across multiple sectors to make high-stakes business decisions in complex and dynamic regulatory environments. He represents clients seeking to understand and impact emerging regulatory developments and build internal systems for managing long-term compliance and effectiveness. His clients are impacted by tax reform, regulatory reform, new trade policies, and emerging developments in areas such as privacy policy. 

Prior to joining Clark Hill, Anthony served as Chief of Staff and Counselor for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), the White House office that manages the centralized review of all significant federal regulations, significant guidance documents, government forms, and regulatory data, and also oversees the development and implementation of federal privacy policy and statistical policy. At OIRA, he worked closely with lawyers, economists, statisticians, subject matter experts, and others across the Executive Branch to develop and improve regulatory programs at numerous federal agencies. He also contributed to important process reforms, information policy developments, cross-cutting regulatory initiatives, and bilateral regulatory cooperation agreements that help to reduce cross-border regulatory friction. His experience provides clients the opportunity for unique representation, as he deeply understands the substantive aspects of regulations and the regulatory process, as well as the mechanical and political dynamics associated with their development.

Anthony also clerked for the Honorable Neomi J. Rao at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, known well for its role in reviewing challenges to federal regulations and other actions. He served as a Core Member of the Regulatory Reform Team on the Trump Presidential Transition Team and as a Member of the President’s Beachhead Team at OIRA. Anthony began his career in Washington at The Heritage Foundation, where he has returned to serve as Visiting Fellow in Regulatory Policy at the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies. 

Anthony brings extensive experience with higher education. As the Associate General Counsel and Assistant Secretary of the Board at a major university, he has first-hand experience with academic institutions and the legal and regulatory issues they face. He assists clients in this and other highly-regulated sectors to anticipate, analyze, and successfully address those issues.

Anthony earned a Juris Doctor and LL.M. in Securities and Financial Regulation from Georgetown University Law Center and a Bachelor of Arts in History from Southeastern University. He is admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia and New York.
