As part of its ongoing effort to provide maximum value to clients, Haynes and Boone, LLP has hired David Boden as its Chief Operating Officer.

I am impressed with the leadership team and its keen focus on strengthening client relationships as the firm implements its strategic plan. They are clearly poised for continued growth nationally and internationally,” he said. “I was also very much drawn to the culture of the firm.”
