President-elect Donald Trump is considering George Conway, a long-time corporate lawyer and the husband of senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, to be U.S. solicitor general, the government top appellate lawyer, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Conway, who’s spent more than two decades as a partner at New York corporate legal powerhouse Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, has made a career representing high-profile clients from the National Football League to tobacco maker Phillip Morris, according to his biography on the firm’s website. He wasn’t directly involved in Trump’s presidential campaign, which was managed by his wife.

Trump’s pick for solicitor general will likely play a key role as the president-elect tries to make good on campaign promises to alter the U.S. government’s role in many aspects of American life. The lawyers in the office represent the government before the U.S. Supreme Court and decide when to seek review from the nation’s highest tribunal. The solicitor general is also responsible for deciding when to appeal lower court decisions.
