John Sullivan

Of Counsel

717 King Street, Suite 200
Alexandria VA 22314
United States of America

John Sullivan is Of Counsel who brings 30+ years of law firm and in-house counsel experience in various capacities managing litigation and compliance. Prior to joining Binnall Law Group, John was the first General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer at Project Veritas in New York managing investigative journalism, media, non-profit organizations, and board governance. The harvester of hundreds of retractions from journalists internationally, John spearheaded offensive efforts against defamation, fueling the Retracto series of video releases and worked with the team to combat, and defeat, censorship of any ideology. In tandem with outside counsel, John implemented Project Veritas’ initial efforts with brave whistleblowers and insiders. Many patriots felt compelled to come forward and expose waste, fraud, corruption and self-dealing in their organizations. Project Veritas helped them reveal the truth for the betterment of an informed society as protected newsgathering mandated by the Supreme Court in Bartnicki v. Vopper.

The weaponization of the Biden Department of Justice against perceived political enemies in recent years prompted otherwise adversarial organizations, such as the ACLU, Reporters Committee For Freedom of the Press and Washington Post, among others, to rally in support of Project Veritas in First Amendment solidarity following the unconstitutional raids of its journalists’ homes over Ashley Biden’s diary. The Biden DOJ’s selective overreach against journalism has made the matter a focus of the House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. John enjoyed coordinating with them and remains passionate about advancing truth, accountability and transparency. 

While at John Hancock in Boston for 17 years, John was Assistant Vice President & Counsel during which he was part of managing a $1 billion book of complex London Market spiral reinsurance run-off business and was frequently engaged in longlasting arbitrations against English companies in London. John also managed life, LTC and insurance fraud matters and was part of managing enterprise-wide initiatives including the US Reinsurance Division Subsidiary Reorganization with Manulife, and implementation of the records retention policy for the largest insurer in North America and fourth largest in the world at that time.

A native of Hawaii, John graduated from the University of Hawaii in Honolulu in 1988 where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree before earning his Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University in 1991. He is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Hawaii and Massachusetts as well as the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. A proven leader, John was ranked in the top 7% of effective executive management skills by Bartell & Bartell in State College, Pennsylvania.
