May 15, 2023

Haynes and Boone, LLP has pledged financial assistance to the Royal Naval Association (RNA) to support the RNA’s charitable activities through the year.

The RNA has about 17,000 members and 250 branches in the U.K. and overseas. The organization provides broad-based advice and support to veterans of all ages and experiences.

“This is the beginning of a fantastic partnership with Haynes Boone,” said Captain Bill Oliphant OBE, General Secretary of the RNA.

Haynes Boone has long provided legal and financial support to military veterans. The firm’s Veterans Network also strives to create a sense of community among Haynes Boone lawyers who have served in the military.

“Our support of the RNA is a reflection of the firm’s values and a testament to the good work and support the RNA gives to the naval community,” said Haynes Boone Partner Mark Johnson, a former Royal Navy Officer. “We know that our financial contribution and continued backing will help those who need it most.”

Co-chair of both the firm’s Shipping and Autonomous Transportation Practices, Mark served 13 years in the Royal Navy, with a wide variety of posts including as a navigating officer, exchange officer (to the Royal Dutch Navy) and finally as a commanding officer.
