Xander Landen is a Senior Associate in the New York office.

Before joining Quinlan, he worked as a journalist with a focus on investigative and political reporting. Most recently he was a staff writer at Newsweek, where he covered breaking news and U.S. politics. Before that, as a reporter for VTDigger, the largest news outlet in Vermont, he wrote about the statehouse, public policy and state government. In 2019, he published an investigative report about how the Vermont DMV sold drivers' personal information for millions of dollars without their consent. The reporting prompted Vermont's governor and state officials to take action to reform the practice. 

Xander's work has been published by other news outlets including PBS Newshour, Politifact, and New York City's NPR station, WNYC, where he contributed to an award-winning investigation of how police departments shield their misconduct records from the public.
