Following a string of controversial interviews after joining President Donald Trump’s legal team, Rudolph Giuliani has reportedly resigned from Greenberg Traurig, the major law firm where he previously practiced.
The former New York City mayor announced he would be taking a leave of absence from the firm ahead of his decision to represent the president last month.
According to the New York Times, however, partners expressed concern about the manner in which Giuliani attempted to explain Trump’s legal challenges — specifically hush payments made to an adult film actress — in television interviews last week.
His abrupt resignation was confirmed in a statement by Richard Rosenbaum, the firm’s chairman.
“After recognizing that this work is all consuming and is lasting longer than initially anticipated, Rudy has determined it is best for him to resign,” he said.
