Jonathan Berry, a former Jones Day attorney turned Justice Department official, is now heading the Labor Department’s policy office, the agency confirmed to Bloomberg Law.
Berry was tapped in April for the influential post of principal deputy assistant secretary for policy. He now leads the office charged with counseling Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on policy developments and overseeing the crafting of regulations across the department.
The office still awaits a Trump nominee for a permanent assistant secretary. Previously, Nathan Mehrens assumed the acting assistant secretary title, but Mehrens will now report to Berry.
Before serving from January 2017 to April 2018 as the DOJ’s counsel to the assistant attorney general, Berry worked as the chief counsel to President Donald Trump’s transition team, according to his financial disclosure report published by ProPublica.
In the private sector, he was most recently an associate with management-side firm Morgan Lewis in Washington. Berry also clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.
Berry received a law degree from Columbia University in 2011, according to his LinkedIn profile.
