He managed responses to high-profile congressional and other investigations, and he assisted the President in nominating and confirming federal judges. Stuart also served as Deputy Counsel to the President from 2021-2022. Throughout his time in the White House, he was deeply embedded in the administrative law and regulatory process, working closely with Cabinet secretaries, agency general counsel, and the Department of Justice on policy development and defending litigation challenging Administration actions. Previously, Stuart also served as the Acting Associate Attorney General of the United States, the third-ranking position at the Department of Justice, and as the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Division, the Department of Justice’s largest litigating division. Stuart received his law degree from Yale Law School, where he served as an articles editor of The Yale Law Journal. He clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Byron White and for Senior U.S. Circuit Judge Gerald Bard Tjoflat of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
