Levick has officially cut ties with London’s International Counsel Bureau to provide media relations support for Kuwaito detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison facility
The Washington firm picked up the business in 2004. Levick’s role focused on discussing the cases, habeas corpus hearings and detainees’ legal challenges in federal court.
Family members of the detainees had picked up the tab.
In October, ICB turned to Democratic operative Joe Trippi to rep the final two Kuwaitis held at the facility in Cuba.
Trippi, a consultant to Potomac Square Group, provides “strategic communications” savvy to the campaign to achieve repatriation of the Kuwaiti.
PCG works in tandem with Arnold & Porter and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, firms that are special lead counsels to ICB.
