03/16/2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Seasoned trial lawyer Richard A. Ripley has joined Haynes and Boone, LLP in Washington, D.C., as a partner in the firm’s Specialized Litigation Section.

Mr. Ripley practices complex civil litigation with a focus on antitrust and competition law. He was formerly a partner in Howrey LLP’s nationally and globally ranked antitrust practice.

Washington, D.C. Administrative Partner James Wade said Haynes and Boone moved swiftly to attract Mr. Ripley despite regret over seeing a fellow law firm’s dissolution.

“Rick is an outstanding and experienced litigator,” Mr. Wade said. “We are thrilled he has chosen Haynes and Boone to continue his practice. His immense experience complements our national special litigation and antitrust practice, and will be an invaluable resource to firm clients.”

Mr. Ripley has more than 24 years of litigation and trial experience with a particular emphasis on defending market leading companies against multifaceted challenges to their pricing and distribution, marketing, and strategic business practices and conduct. He has tried antitrust and other complex claims brought by federal and state regulators, private plaintiffs and the class action bar. He also has handled numerous antitrust grand jury and government conduct investigations for Fortune 100 companies.

Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international corporate law firm with offices in Texas, New York, California, Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Moscow, providing a full spectrum of legal services. With about 550 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by The National Law Journal.
