The non-partisan task force, made up of more than 25 lawyers in practice groups across the firm, disseminates articles, alerts, webinars and other communications to clients in various industries.
“The Administration Transition Task Force is an important initiative for our clients, who are eager to see how new laws and policies under the Biden administration will affect them,” said Partner Joseph Matal, who is leading the task force. “We are providing them with pertinent information and useful advice to help them navigate the maze of challenges and opportunities ahead.”
Members of the task force work in practice areas ranging from antitrust and competition to energy and environment, finance, intellectual property (IP), labor and employment, and tax. Based in Washington, D.C., Matal served as both the U.S. Patent and Trademark’s Acting Director and Acting Solicitor. As Acting Solicitor, he defended the agency in IP cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Matal and other task force members meet regularly to discuss developments in their practice areas.
“As a historically non-partisan firm, Haynes and Boone is well-positioned to help clients in various industries understand executive orders and government policies that may impact their businesses,” Managing Partner Taylor Wilson said.
All content produced by the task force is housed in a resource center on the Haynes and Boone website. The Presidential Administration Transition Resource Center has a similar format to the firm’s COVID-19 Resource Center, which houses podcasts, articles and alerts produced by the firm’s COVID-19 Task Force.
